COMMISSIONER Central Lieutenant Colonel Laisenia Tuitubou has confirmed that all government projects for the Central Division yet to be completed from last year will be completed this year.

Lt-Col Tuitubou said they had a lot of Public Sector Investment Program (PSIP) projects to complete this year which also included projects in the outer islands. "One of those projects yet to be completed from last year is the $100,000 Beqa Island Seawall construction project," Lt-Col Tuitubou said.

"We are awaiting extra funds for the projects and are also waiting on PWD workers that were deployed to assist in the rehabilitation work in the west after Tropical Cyclone Evan.

"When the workers return from the west they will commence with the construction work," Lt-Col Tuitubou explained.

"We hope to finish the Beqa Island project soon as it has been pending for sometime but all projects are done on a stage to stage basis," the Commissioner Central said.

He said government wanted to reassure the people of Beqa that seawall projects for the island would be completed this year.

"We have other projects for the Central Division that we will be focusing on, such as rural road upgrades, grid extensions and constructions of nursing stations," he added.

"We hope to complete all projects for 2013 and focus on other development needed in the Central Division.

"People of Beqa Island can also expect the construction of a $400,000 new nursing station to be constructed in Raviravi Village soon," he said.
