The Port Moresby city Commission is keeping the city safe in this raining weather. The recent road and drainage maintenance carried out by city commission has helped reduce floods during the rainy weather.
City Manager Ravu Frank acknowledges the positive outcome but emphasizes the need for further work to address the issue permanently.
Measures taken include clearing encroachments, scaling up cleaning and unblocking drainages, and engaging hydrology engineers for lasting solutions.
26 locations were established for a demolition exercise, making the smooth flow of drain waters. Demolition has already started in some of these areas where residents have encroached on reserves.
The City Manager urges caution while driving in wet conditions, urging residents to refrain from dumping rubbish into drains during this wet season.
He emphasizes that some flooding incidents are caused by rubbish blocking drainage systems.
NCDC is also taking continuous action by installing trash bins at CBDs and other public places to encourage proper waste disposal.
