Road upgrade plans for highland

SCHOOLchildren living in Rewasau, Naqelewai and Nabobuco in Naitasiri have been affected by bad road conditions.

Commissioner Central Lieutenant Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou said last week they needed to complete road projects in Nabobuco before the start of the new school year because students travelled on those roads on a daily basis.

"We are fortunate that the prime minister allocated a lot of funds for road upgrade projects for next year because a lot of work needs to be done on roads, especially in the rural areas," he said.

"We are thankful that after the completion of the flood rehabilitation programs in the west, we were fortunate to have been given funds for the roadworks for Naqelewai and Nabobuco.

"So we have been discussing with the Republic of Fiji Military Forces' engineers on the road maintenance work because when I last visited Nabobuco, the road was in a really bad state.

"Students who attend schools in Nabobuco face many problems going to and returning from school, so we are trying to undertake this project before the end of the year."

Lt-Col Tuitubou said his office was trying its best to fix the roads in the interior of Naitasiri.
