The most important road in PNG is the Highlands Highway, which connects the Highlands to PNG’s busiest port of Lae. However, mountainous terrain, PNG’s heavy rainfall and years of under-investment have left PNG’s road network in poor shape.
In 2020, the PNG Government announced a 20-year road transport infrastructure program called Connect PNG 2020–2040. A K350 million expansion of Lae Port is underway. It will include the greater Lae Tidal Basin Project and the adjacent Huon Industrial Park development.
Meanwhile, ambitious plans exist to expand PNG’s electricity network to 70% of the population by 2030, from 13% in 2018.
In February 2018, the project to relocate PNG’s second busiest port, in Port Moresby, to a larger site on Motukea Island was completed.
