Road woes

PACIFIC Transport has expressed concern at the deteriorating road conditions on Taveuni.

Pacific Transport manager Prakash Sami said the worsening road condition was affecting their services to the northern and southern ends of Taveuni.

"There is nobody else that suffers but the villagers who live in these areas as they have to pay a lot to get to where the services are," said Mr Prakash.

Director Roads John Luveniyali said the road at the north end of the island had been repaired while work was beginning on the road to the south end.

He said Taveuni received high rainfall all year round which affected the road conditions. "Plans are underway to upgrade the new Vuna coastal road at the southern end but we await funding for the project," he said.
