3.2 - Urban Geology and Infrastructure Development
The Geological Survey Division continues to contribute towards infrastructure development nation-wide, through provision of geotechnical engineering investigations.
Our contributions in urban geology mapping will ensure infrastructure developments in new and existing urban towns take geological conditions into considerations. Projects covered so far under Urban Geology mapping include the Walium, Usino and Basamuk. In 2015 GSD will conduct urban geology mapping of the Kokopo township.
