OTC Grounds

For ex residents of Port Moresby - The area, on the diagonally opposite corner of Boroko Drive and Sir Hubert Murray Highway to the NBC, commonly called the OTC grounds has recently been graded and prepared for Telikom housing. (Telikom was PTC was Post and Telecom - Dept of Public Utilities etc) The transmitting equipment on site will be moved elsewhere.

Just for interest because it is also in the same area as the previous article. Ex residents should remember the small tuck shop on the opposite corner to the NBC where clubs such as the walking club met before going off on their adventures. The lucky squatter managed to claim ownership of the land some time ago and a Mobil Service Station was built on the site. To keep you all up-to-date - just recently the service station has been enlarged to become a mini-convenience store.
