Deplorable conditions

VILLAGERS of Vudibasoga in Seaqaqa are complaining about road conditions which have affected schoolchildren in the village.

Villager Cema Balaivanualala said her children and a few others had to walk five kilometres every morning to catch the first bus at the main road.

"As a mother I am very concerned and nearly cry everyday to see my children and their companions walk with their bags through hot sun and rain to catch the bus which has not been coming up to the village since January 24," she said.

"The road authorities had graded the road up to the village and left it in a deplorable state making bus services to the village impossible. I have approached the authorities and we have been told that they will start work in March."

Fiji Roads Authority chief executive Neil Cook said they would ensure to solve the problem people were going through.
