The road of confusion

It’s a regularly used road so something should be done immediately so that these signs come into effect.


Update 18/4/16 : As an update to the article below, the city authority has now switched on the traffic lights at the central business district as well as place road traffic officers at designated area to ensure that traffic goes the right direction.  Well done to NCDC,

Original 21/3/2016 : Over the weekend, we spotted the security guard who controls traffic at the RH Supermarket at Gordons and posted a pic of him claiming he is probably Papua New Guinea’s most popular security guard.  The response to the post was overwhelming and the majority of those who commented spoke positively of the guard’s commitment and dedication to his job.

We found out that the guard’s name is Bero from Kerema in the Gulf Province.

Here is the post again:

We also posted a pic on Instagram:

This morning, a wantok sent us a pic of Champion Parade which runs across the city’s Central Business District in Town. As you can see from the pic we received, the arrows painted on the road are facing a different direction while the vehicles are facing the opposite direction.

The line markers could be excused for having painted the road recently but it’s important that once signs are on the road they should be adhered to.  Which means traffic officers should be placed on the road to direct traffic so that not only do motorists comply with road signs, confusion and accidents are prevented.

It’s a regularly used road so something should be done immediately so that these signs come into effect.

Someone who could assist in controlling traffic would be our friend Bero!

Safe driving!
