Plans are now in hand in Papua New Guinea (PNG) to improve the Highlands Highway, which links Mount Hagen with Nadzab Airport. The work is expected to cost US$700 million and the tender process will open shortly, with construction work timed to commence in the second quarter of 2018. However the project will pose a number of challenges and the improvement works could take as long as 10 years to complete. Funding for the project will be supplied by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
