25 m. Coastal Causeway in Patiagaga – New Ireland
In New Ireland UNDP is supporting local community with building 25 m. coastal causeway.
The causeway will help them to get to the boats at a high tide and travel to school or the health centre, to go shopping or visit family and friends, which become increasingly difficult in the recent years due to high-tides and coastal erosion.
With the new causeway, the high tide water level will only reach the first layer of cement bags – the second layer will be dry to walk on.
