GOVERNMENT officials have already cleaned up a site for the new station in the district of Kubulau in Bua.

Northern divisional planning officer Uraia Rainima said the station would be built this year.

"This is part of government's commitment in taking our services to the doorsteps of our people," he said.

"Last week a team of government officials was in Kubulau to clear the area for the construction of the station and prepare the place for the people of Kubulau and surrounding areas.

"This will mean daily government services to our people — we will work closer with the people of this district."

Mr Rainima said having a government station would help them identify the needs on the ground.

He said government was committed to improving services.

Meanwhile, the neighbouring district of Wainunu would also develop three farming subdivisions this year.

Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea said the new subdivisions in Raravula in Nakawakawa and Dawacumu and Dawaqele in Navakasali Village would be developed this year.
