K10m to Light up District

Source:The National, Wednesday July 8th, 2015

KANDEP MP Don Polye plans to spend K10 million to light up the district in Enga.
Polye revealed that when presenting the district’s services improvement programme report to the Department of Rural Implementation.
He said officials from a consultancy company were sent to Kandep last Friday to do a feasibility study.
On the completion of the study, the Yonki power grid will be pulled along the Kandep-Mendi Highway from Southern Highlands to the district.
“The project will raise the profile of the district as there are many projects nearing completion or under construction like the Kandep-Laiagam/Porgera Road, police barracks and rural hospital,” Polye said,
“We are still waiting for the implementation of an overdue electricity project generated by Hides gas which was announced by the past government but to date nothing tangible has taken place.
“The gas project was to cover the entire Highlands region but it has been delayed.”
Meanwhile, Polye said the people of Hela and Kandep had been deprived of the only road access by the Government when K39 million allocated for the proposed bridge to link Hela and Enga was diverted to other projects outside the district
