Polye blasts ‘poor’ service
MINISTER for Transport, Works and Civil Aviation, Don Polye has described land transport services currently being provided in the country as “substandard and poor”.
And while these deficiencies were known to him more than five years ago, he admitted he did not give it the attention he intended to until this year.
Mr Polye told a stakeholder meeting in Port Moresby yesterday that because PNG’s land transport system had not been given the recognition it deserved, there had been a drop in the level of service provided to the public, businesses, people and overseas visitors.
However, he was adamant on seeing this trend reversed throughout this year.
He is determined to focus his attention on improvements to the road transport system, starting with the National Capital District.
To achieve this, Mr Polye has tasked a working committee comprising members of his staff and transport regulators to come up with a plan.
