Poor roads affect villagers

IF the infrastructure on Kadavu is poor, businesses will not grow.

This is the sentiment of roko tui Kadavu Eroni Vunisa who said the major setback on the island was the lack of proper transport.

He said 90 per cent of the people on Kadavu used fibreglass boats and the remaining 10 per cent used four-wheel trucks.

"Here we don't have good standard roads which is a burden," Mr Vunisa said.

"For example, going from Kadavu to Buliya costs the council $600 for transportation alone."

Mr Vunisa said business was slowly booming because three vessels service the island — MV Sunuiwasa, MV Lomaiviti Princess and MV Uluinabukelevu — with six domestic flights a week.
