Component 2 - Access Road
The TRHDP will consist of 4 components: (i) Hydropower Facility (HPF); (ii) Access Road; (iii) Transmission Line; (iv) Technical Assistance (TA). This factsheet will detail Component 2 - Access Road.
Access Road - US $26.0 million
The estimated cost of US$ 26.0 million is based on the detailed design being executed by SIG’s international consulting firm and ongoing negotiations with the sponsors.
- Lot 1 involving the upgrade of the existing 13.2 km road from Black Post Junction to Managikiki Village; and
- Lot 2 involving a 5.5 km “greenfield” road through steep heavily forested terrain from Managikiki Village to the dam and power station.
- Upon commissioning of the Hydropower Facility, Lot 1 will become the responsibility of SIG and Lot 2 will remain the responsibility of Tina Hydro Limited for the duration of the PPA, after which it will be handed over to SIG together with the Hydropower Facility.
