Vanuatu to launch Tingting Rod Sefti Campaign

The new Tingting Rod Sefti traffic awareness campaign will be launched at Saralana Park in Port Vila on Thursday.

The Tingting Rod Sefti campaign is part of the Port Vila Urban Development Project (PVUDP) and aims to educate drivers and pedestrians about the use of Port Vila’s new bus stops, footpaths, road signs and road line markings.

Tingting Rod Sefti is a partnership between the Government of Vanuatu with the Shefa Port Vila Public Land Transport Association, the Public Land Transport Authority, Port Vila Municipal Council Traffic Wardens, the Vanuatu Police Force, and media organisations to encourage everyone to “Tingting Rod Sefti” on Port Vila’s roads.

The campaign will be officially launched by the Minister of Infrastructure and Public Utilities, Jotham Napat, and project partners: the Australian High Commissioner, Jenny Da Rin, and the Asian Development Bank representative Nancy Wells, and the Lord Mayor of Port Vila, Albert Sandy Daniel.

Invited guests include the Port Vila Municipal Council, Vanuatu Police Force, Shefa and Port Vila Public Land Transport Association, Public Land Transport Authority, non-government organisations and government ministries, and media including the Black Thunder Bus.

Port Vila’s bus drivers are especially being invited to attend the launch to learn about the Tingting Rod Sefti campaign and receive free campaign giveaways including stickers, posters and t-shirts, from 9am to 3pm at the Saralana Park parking area.

Tingting Rod Sefti is an initiative of the governments of Vanuatu and Australia and the Asian Development Bank as part of the Port Vila Urban Development Project (PVUDP).

The PVUDP aims to improve the road network and drainage system in greater Port Vila, encouraging improved traffic flow and greater awareness of traffic safety.
