Water tanks for remote Torokina region in Bougainville

The Torokina region is labelled as remote and devoid of government service delivery

People from South Bougainville should receive water tanks thanks to the District Development Authority.
Local MP and Minister for Information and Communications Technology Timothy Masiu yesterday delivered 30 water tanks that can hold 2000 litres of water each.
These tanks are for the people of Torokina, a region labelled as remote and devoid of government service delivery.
New Dawn FM in Buka reports the tanks will be taken to Buka later by boat.
Minister Masiu says every part of South Bougainville will see change take place and that includes Torokina despite its isolation.
Masiu said his DDA board has approved projects worth more than K 3 million and he would continue to work on other projects in Torokina which also include a volcano monitoring equipment to monitor seismic activities at Mt. Bagana.
He also said that a second tractor will be delivered to Torokina to help cocoa farmers there transport their produce to the beach in preparation for shipment to markets in Buka and Rabaul.
Early this year during his visit to Torokina he noted there were deteriorated roads and he suggested the people accept a tractor to manoeuvre the bad roads.
A first one has been delivered and Masiu now looks forward to assisting the people with a second one.
He said a shipping vessel has been worked on to service the west coast area but currently it has mechanical problems, and once parts are installed, the vessel work be serving the people.
Next month Masiu will open the Atsinima Aid Post,  a double classroom and a teachers house at a Torokina school.
