TWO major walkways along the Suva foreshore and Terry Walk are near completion.

Suva City special administrator Chandu Umaria said the walkways would be the ideal place for families once work was completed.

Mr Umaria said they planned to include other amenities on the Suva foreshore such as food stalls, public convenience for men and women, podium where live band could entertain and more benches.

"We are hoping to have all this by Easter," Mr Umaria said.

He said the Terry Walk that ran along Nabukalou Creek and the MHCC complex would attract not only locals but visitors because they planned to beautify the area making Suva a friendly and safe city.

The new walkway was due to be completed early this year however, Mr Umaria said the $350,000 project would now be completed before Easter.

"The project started last year and we were hoping to get this finished earlier."

He said once the walkway was completed, SCC would look at improving Nabukalou Creek in the heart of the Capital City.

"We are definitely looking at dredging Nabukalou Creek once the Terry Walk construction is completed," Mr Umaria said.

"This will also allow us to get a handle on the flooding that occurs outside the Harifam Centre during king tides," he said.
