Chiefs from the Tanamalo area on Buka Island are calling on the ABG and other road works contractors to assist them in the upgrade of their section of the Buka ring road highway.
Peter Tagiolo a chief from the area today during an interview with New Dawn FM made the call representing his people.
He says that due to heavy rains during the past month and no proper drainage their roads have gone from bad to worse.
He says that the road is their only way of transport to and fro Buka town for his people and has called for more assistance in the maintenance of the road.
Meanwhile Mr Tagiolo also made some positive comments commending youths from the area who have taken an initiative in patching the huge portholes in their section of the highway.
He has called on stakeholders to make their pledging become reality to prepare the ring road for sealing by next year.
