On Sunday 18th March 2018, the Sakula bridge collapsed when a PMV truck crossed it. This become the third bridge to fall in Madang in the recent months causing major inconveniences to the travelling public of the province. It connects Bogia to Madang through Nubia coconut plantation. Repairs are yet to be done. Banab and Kawar are yet to be repaired/updated. In the interim the threat of opportunist crime on the North Coast Road and Madang/Morobe Highway is still high so those using these roads must consult their local staff and security providers before confirming travels.
