Nice Arawa roads

I went to Arawa for the first time a couple of months ago. It used to be a big modern town in the early 80’s. The streets in some areas looked like roads that you would see in Australia. I thought they were very nice with the median strip in the middle. Looking at these photos, you could be mistaken for thinking that they are of a small country town in Australia.

And here’s an intersection. It may not look very exciting to you. In fact it may just look like a normal intersection. That is what I found so exciting about it. I haven’t seen an intersection quite like this one in PNG before. It even has a slip lane for turning left! It felt really strange – ‘surreal’ is maybe what you would call it.
