WORK on the relocation of the Nausori bus stand and market will be launched on Thursday.

Nausori Town Council special administrator Napolioni Masirewa said the development of infrastructure usually enhanced the growth of the business and the economy.

The government allocated $1.5million in 2013 and another $1.5million in 2014, towards the relocation and construction of the Nausori market, which services one of the most heavily-populated centres in Fiji.

Mr Masirewa said the town had a population of 25,000 to 27,000 while the peri-urban areas of Nausori had more than 47,000 people.

"It may be a small town but it is serving the population of Naitasiri, Tailevu and Rewa," he said. Mr Masirewa said there would be other activities that are projected for the current site of the market and bus stand.

"The landscape in Nausori is fast changing.

"The migration of people from other areas have affected the demographics and it is important for the leadership to acknowledge this crucial fact," he said. He said work on the Nausori airport was also planned.

"Soon the road sealing on the Kings Rd in Wainibuka will be completed bringing in extra traffic to the Central Division,"

Indeed, he said it was true that big investments may be slowly coming in but they can't also be written off.

He said the construction of new buildings in town would be excessof $15million.
