Sentani, Jubi – People in Depapre Sub-district are complaining about road infrastructure in their sub-districts that have still in severely damaged condition.
Instead of the Jayapura District Government should be responsible for the repair; however, it is the responsibility of the Papua Provincial Government.
The Provincial Highway Agency has started the repair, but the works stopped before it completed.
The current Jayapura Regent Mathius Awoitauw said the local government unceasingly communicate and coordinate with the provincial government to be more aware of the condition of road infrastructure in his territory.
“The local government hopes that the problem of road infrastructure would be completely resolved by the provincial government because we have no authority over this,” said the regent at Sentani on Friday (4/5/2018).
He said the repair stopped because some culprits only consider their interests than the community. He figured the current job was on the halfway stage of completion, but somehow it suspended. “We hope the provincial government can fully complete the work of Depapre road this year,” he hoped.
Meanwhile Depapre Sub-district Chief said the impact of damaged roads results in frequent accidents in Depapre. “When the president was here last time, the road was very smooth, but then it has been badly damaged until now,” he said. (*)
