Boroko Market Safer Than Gordon

Central Vendors At The New Boroko Market Only Have Words Of Praise For The Security Personnel Who Have Been Doing A Tremendous Job Keeping The Vendors Safe Inside And Outside The Vicinity Of The Market.





Central vendors at the new Boroko market only have words of praise for the security personnel who have been doing a tremendous job keeping the vendors safe inside and outside the vicinity of the market.


“Boroko Market is the best, security wise,” said a spokesperson of the Central Market Vendors during a Wholesale Vendors in NCD and Central Province consultative meeting with NCDC to discuss relevant issues.


“We were victims at Gordon market, our female folks were the  main victims but here they can trade without fear.”


The infamous Gordon market which is known for the notorious activities from bag snatching to hold ups was closed for renovation forcing vendors, including the Central Vendors who bring bags of fresh food to sell to the retailers to be relocated with other vendors to the Boroko market.


Meanwhile, Fletcher Morobe has been engaged as the design and build contractor of the project which will see the construction of a two-storey structure to cater for more than 1500 registered vendors. The K30 million redevelopment will also include cafes and kiosks, spacious parking area, food court, play ground, a space for informal vendors, landscaping of and a one-way traffic system.

Port Moresby city yesterday witnessed a K80 million addition to its fast developing road network with the opening of the Koura Way Road.

Works Minister Michael Nali opened the new road which links the suburb of Tokarara and Hanuabada village which is a distance of over 4km.

According to Mr Nali this brings to K2 billion in total the amount invested by the Government in NCD including all sports stadiums, the Jackson International Airport-Waigani fly over and other infrastructure.

This also makes Port Moresby city the fastest growing urban centre in the country coupled with other building infrastructure and business expansions.

“The city is moving in the right direction, you have the opening of this K80 million road project, you know the Government has given up to K2 billion to National Capital District Commission for all these roads, stadiums, all hospitals, and the flyover.

“When we built the Poreporena Freeway, critics said it was a waste of money, yet they drive on the freeway,” he said.

Mr Nali described those critics as spineless and said “we must move forward and develop.”

He urged the people of the city to look after the infrastructures around the city. It is the third road project that has been constructed to ease the traffic congestion in the city.

The Waigani, Tokarara to Hanuabada road is 4.5km, with 250 energy saving lights installed and was constructed with a Bank South Pacific loan.

Parkop Plans to Transform NCD into a ‘21st Century City’

The National

NATIONAL Capital District Governor Powes Parkop plans to transform Port Moresby over the next five years into a “21st century city”.

“We cannot be complacent anymore. We cannot continue to give excuses or be mediocre about the quality of life and standard of living in our city, the status of infrastructure and so on.


“We’ve got to do a quantum leap – not just for the city but for the rest of the nation. The rest of the nation needs a major inspiration. They need to believe that a better future is possible. We’ve given them that possibility over the last nine to 10 years.


“We can absolutely do more and even better. That’s what I would like to see in the next five years. I want us to bring our city into the 21st Century. “We can do it. There’s no reason why we can’t do it. We have all the possibilities with us now. We have the experience.”
He was sworn as governor yesterday by Magistrate Tracy Ganaii.
The other NCD MPs are expected to be sworn in today.
Parkop said there were still some hurdles to overcome.
“There are some things that we must have zero-tolerance for,” he said.
