A GOVERNMENT team toured the north to inspect major road upgrade projects in the division.

Fiji Roads Authority chief executive officer Neil Cook was part of the tour.

Mr Cook said they took their time to look at the two major road projects along the Buca Bay to Savusavu highway and the Dreketi to Nabouwalu project which was to officially begin soon.

He also met the Minister for Agriculture, Lieutenant-Colonel Inia Seruiratu, on Tuesday and held talks regarding the rationale behind the need for road upgrades and how it would contribute to the greater economical achievements of the division.

"We had the opportunity to meet with the Commissioner Northern, Lieutenant-Colonel Ilai Moceica, and discuss a few of his projects which are well in line with the objectives of the Fiji Roads Authority," said Mr Cook.

"Road condition in Vanua Levu is generally pretty good, however, maintenance is required in outlying sections of the main lands. The roads are not too bad. They just need maintenance and our program will include sealed and unsealed roads beginning this year and to go on for the next few years," he said.

Mr Cook said works on the Dreketi-Nabouwalu highway would begin soon and they had begun their site surveys and completed setting up quarters for labourers.
