Road maintenance awareness workshop held in North Malaita

A two weeks road maintenance awareness program is underway in the Northern region of Malaita.

The awareness program has started from Sulione in North-east Malaita to Malu'u in the North-western part of the province.

SIBC's correspondent in North Malaita John Kiri says the aim of the awareness meetings is to seek support and cooperation from people about the road maintenance work being carried out by the Community Sector Project.

Mr Kiri says 14 locations have been selected for the awareness program.

They include Sulione Market, Olemaoma House of Chiefs, Baefua House of Chiefs, Matakwalao, Silolo, and Malu'u markets.

Among the topics being discussed are road maintenance, allowing the use of gravel and other resources, safety of machine and operators, road links and social services and economic activities.

Mr Kiri says as soon as the awareness program is completed, it is hoped road works would start from Malu'u to Fouia.
