Official Ground Breaking Ceremony for Port Vila Project

The Government of Vanuatu hosted an official ground breaking ceremony for Phase 1 of the Roads and Drainage sub-project.

Ministry for Infrastructure and Public Utilities and key Government Ministers, Australian and New Zealand High Commissioners, Municipal Councillors, Church and Civil Society representatives attended a presentation from RMS recently, displaying the Jet Master road patching machine which is being used to fix potholes around the city.

Minister, Jotham Napat was briefed by our engineer Paul Carr, as to how the machine works before being given a hands on live experience on board the machine itself.

Australian High Commissioner, Jeremy Bruer, said that the PVUDP will improve the lives of the people in Port Vila and added that the work that RMS is doing is already making it safer for drivers and pedestrians.

One prominent local leader said “We cannot wait for the awesome experience of driving down a smooth road where there is no sign of potholes and where pedestrians and disabled people can have the same privilege of using the roads knowing that they are safe.”

Works continue.

RMS is also working to create equal employment opportunities for women with 46% of the local- ly recruited workforce being


women. The Contractor has been proactive in ad- dressing HIV and other sexually transmitted infec- tions. Earlier this month RMS requested Wan Smol Bag to carry out HIV and STI awareness education for all Contractor person- nel and to ensure that


condoms and education information materials are available to all per- sonnel at all times.   All PVUDP contractors are actively promoting HIV and STI prevention awareness to staff and communities.
