Port Vila residents may have already witnessed the PVUDP contractor RMS Jet-master vehicle making quick work of filling the pot-holes along the Kumul(formerly Lini) Highway from Smet Junction near Grace Store along to Manples. Normally this process would be quite time consuming but the RMS Jetmaster uses a sim-ple four stage process, which is highly suitable for relatively stable potholes where the sides of the pot-hole do not crumble easily. Potholes along the 13 km of Phase 1 Roads and Drainage project will be cleaned and prepared, sealed, filled, cured and ready for traffic in one smooth operation. The efficiency of the process means a significant reduc-tion in traffic delays and potholes can be driven over shortly after repairs are made. This is just the first step in the improve-ments to roads and drain-age for Phase 1. The full contents of the newsletter are available here.
