Our friends at Papua West Media made a video showing what Papuans think of the development in Papua, especially Trans-Papua road.
Benjamin Akemi for example he used to walk through the valley and mountains to reach the school where he teach everyday. He and others locals finally get the benefit from the development in West Papua.
The development of this mega project in Papua and West papua provinces will give better access within these provinces. Moreover, it will make traveling within Papua and West Papua to Raja Ampat easier and faster. With the distance of 4,325 km, Trans Papua road is already 85 percents completed. It will accommodate access and connectivity between central activities in Papua province and West Papua which includes Raja Ampat. These central activities are; Sorong, Timika, and Jayapura in Papua province, and Manokwari, Raja Ampat and Tanah Merah in West Papua province. Trans Papua road will cover two routes in each provinces of Papua and West Papua.
