A new government station costing $200,000 will be constructed in Namosi soon.
This was confirmed by the Commissioner Central Lieutenant Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou.
Lt-Col Tuitubou said the government station would be part of the Central Division's public sector investment projects which they were trying to set up in the province.
He said they were awaiting approval from the landowners for these developments to be carried out and when given the approval, the Ministry of Works would start conducting a survey on the site.
"The Ministry of Provincial Development will put up an Assistant District Officer's office at the station and a Lands Department office that will look into the matters concerning copper mining in the province," he said.
"There will be a social Welfare office and agriculture office that will be situated at the government station, so that the people of Namosi do not have to travel far to deal with issues concerning these departments."
Lt-Col Tuitubou said groundwork for the station would probably start this year depending on how early the landowners made their decision.
"Construction work for all the department offices will start next year which will give an estimate cost of $200,000.
"The people of Namosi will surely benefit as it brings government services close to their homes.
"People will not have to travel far to get assistance on government services particularly those under social welfare and those farmers who live in the interior of Namosi."
Lt-Col Tuitubou said government had made tremendous progress in terms of completed capital projects for the Central Division this year.
