Officially no. Unofficially? Well let me tell you about a true incident that happened to me in about 1994.
A team of us were driving from Lae to some village (name escapes me now). We were on the "main" highway, technically a dirt/mud track.
Coming up to a single lane timber bridge in the middle of nowhere we saw that some timber planks were missing, preventing us from driving over the bridge. We got out of the 4x4 and walked up to look closer. There was seemingly not another living soul for miles. Next thing about 8 Raskols (bandits) appeared out of the bushes carrying some timber planks. For a few Kina we could buy the planks and continue our journey (which we did). Strangely enough (sarcasm) the timber planks just happened to perfectly fit!
This is apparently a common practice in PNG. Having worked in PNG, I can understand why PNG is regarded as the most dangerous country outside of a war zone. Beautiful country, once you get out of the poverty and filth in the towns.

An apparently very recent dash cam video of Port Moresby roads. A fair stretch of a 2x2 urban "express"way can be seen.
