THE government has set aside $738,000 for the construction of a new government station on Gau.

The station, to be constructed later this year, will ensure government services to the community and nearby islands in the Lomaiviti Province are improved.

Commissioner Eastern Colonel Netani Rika said the station would ensure improved services to the whole of Lomaiviti.

"The new government station will boost services on the island and for Lomaiviti Province as a whole," Col. Rika said.

"This is all part of the government's efforts to reach out to rural Fijians as well as ensuring their expectations and aspirations are met.

"We cannot fail the rural people."

Col. Rika said the project was in line with the government's objectives to reach out to rural and remote areas and to connect them to government services.

The scope of work includes the construction of office space and quarters to cater for officers who'll be stationed on the island.
