THE Bua Investment Company Limited plans to purchase a $2million crusher soon.

Bua Provincial Council member Ramakutu Nagagavoka said the plans involved the crushing of gravel, which was readily available in the province.

Mr Nagagavoka said talks were in progress to purchase such an asset for the province.

"At the moment we are forming partnerships with a few Chinese companies for the purchase of the machine," he said.

"This is the first time that such a project is taking place within the province and we would like to be part of it.

"Most of the time resource owners sit idle with their resources while other people benefit from them."

Mr Nagagavoka said the provincial council had plans to reap the benefits of the road development project.

China Railway First Group spokesman Donald Singh earlier told this newspaper they were aware of the provincial company's intentions.
