RENOVATION works by the Department of Works on 10 government quarters in the Northern Division are expected to be completed at the end of this month.

Divisional engineer works northern Isikeli Raratabu said apart from the renovation works, other minor outstanding projects would also be completed at the end of the month.

In an earlier statement, Mr Raratabu had said government had allocated different funding assistance for the completion of renovation works.

"Six of the quarters fall under group maintenance and four under special maintenance with different renovation costs," he said.

"This is one of the major projects we are undertaking this year and we aim to complete it so that people are well-aware about the progress of our work."

Renovation works include those that are being carried out at Dreketi research station, Seaqaqa research station, Vunikoka water and sewerage re-lining project in Savusavu and Labasa Town to name a few.

Mr Raratabu said the department had also introduced a strategy where they would meet twice a year with relevant stakeholders to discuss ways of improving their services.
