The usually quite town of Tulagi came alive today as it witnessed two key infrastructures in a wharf and a ramp being handed over to the people in the former capital and to Central Islands Province.

The $10.5M Climate resilient wharf infrastructure were handed over by Acting Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister who is also responsible of infrastructure development Manasseh Maelanga to CIP Premier Polycarp Galaigu and MPA for North West Ngella.

Galaigu in receiving the infrastructures said his people including the businesses houses were happy to receive the wharf and the ramp.

He said such are crucial economic infrastructures for the growth of the rural sector of Tulagi and neigbouring villages.

Galaigu said this is the first wharf that is owned by the provincial government.

The wharf is fully funded by the government and was built by Trades Transformation Company and was represented by its Operations Manager Billy Holosivi.

 “Today’s event demonstrates the Government’s strong commitment to build a robust and resilient network of infrastructure across the country. I am happy to announce that the wharf including the ramp and the shed represent an investment of around 10.5 million dollars,” Maelanga said.

He said further stated that the wharf will support the people of Tulagi and the surrounding communities with easy loading and unloading of goods and produce and create safer boarding platform for the local travelers and other visitors.

The acting Prime Minister attributed the successful project hand over to the strong partnership between the National Government, Provincial Government, Landowners and contractor.

“Today’s event is a testament of a successful partnership between all stakeholders including the national and provincial governments, communities and the contractor. Everyone has contributed to this successful project, which is fully funded by the Government.”

Infrastructure such as roads, bridges, wharves and airports are enablers to economic development. These are projects that our people can see, feel and touch. The government trusts that the wharf will boost the Central Islands Province economic activity and contribute to the transformation of the lives of our people of Tulagi and surrounding communities.

The Acting Prime Minister adds, over the years, the onslaught of natural disasters has increased both in frequency and intensity. The only rational choice for the government is to build for resilience……..“This wharf is a testament of the government’s commitment to build a climate resilient infrastructure.”

Galaigu also conveyed his executive’s gratitude to the National Government for funding the infrastructures.
