goodmorningpapua.com – The National Strategic Project for the Trans Papua Barat Road for the Mameh-Windesi route of 120 kilometers (km) continues in stages and for the 2022 fiscal year, 36 km has been budgeted.
The West Papua National Road Implementation Center (BPJN) of the Directorate General of Highways of the Ministry of PUPR targets this route to be finished in 2024.
A Commitment Making Officer (PPK) 4.1 National Road Implementation Unit (PJN) Region IV Bintuni West Papua Zaki Akram said that the progress of the 2021 Trans Papua Barat Mameh-Windesi route has been paved for 13 kilometers in segment one and 7 kilometers in segment two.
“The National Strategic Project for the Trans Papua Barat road on the Mameh-Windesi route will be done in stages according to the budget proposal,” said Zaki Akram, in Manokwari, Saturday (22/5/2022).
He said that further work on the Mameh-Windesi line in the 2022 budget year has been budgeted for 36 km in two construction segments, namely the first segment with a length of 26 km and the second segment with a length of 10 km.
“Work in the field is still ongoing, because for the 2022 budget year, we ensure that 36 kilometers in two segments will be completed before the contract expires on December 31,” he said.
He did not deny the various obstacles faced in the field such as natural conditions and geographical location as well as telecommunications access in blank spot areas.
“But these obstacles have not dampened our enthusiasm to continue working, and we also expect support from local communities along the Trans Mameh-Windesi route to jointly succeed President Joko Widodo’s Nawa Cita program for the progress of West Papua’s infrastructure development,” he said.
