THREE years of work on the K166 million 50km Mendi-Kandep Road linking Enga and Southern Highlands have come to an end.
The road, through rugged and mountainous terrain was completed by Chinese contractor COVEC (PNG) last week under Asian Development Bank funding. An official opening date is yet to be confirmed.
Leaders such as Works Minister Francis Awesa and Kandep MP and former treasurer Don Polye had been pushing hard for this project since 2012.
COVEC (PNG) acting general manager and project manager Tony Liu said it was the first time for a  direct road connection between Southern Highlands and Enga.
“I’m very, very happy that this road has been completed on time,” he said.
“We built this road to a very high quality and the local people will benefit.”
Liu commended the local people for their understanding and help, the Government, sub-contractors, and landowners.
“This is teamwork, not only one party could have completed this road,” he said.
“We will continue to maintain the road and we look forward to more opportunities to contribute towards the development of this country.”
