A BOTTLENECK project spearheaded by the Nadi Town Council has been given a government grant of $200,000.

Council special administrator Robin Ali said the project was initiated to address the issue of flash flooding within Nadi Town.

"A grant of $200,000 was received by the government on the bottleneck project," he said.

"This was the main course of flash flooding around the Nadi market and bus station area.

"The first phase of work has been completed and that was worth $65,000."

Mr Ali said the first phase of work included the widening of drains and the relocation of FEA power posts.

"For the second phase which is to construct box culverts, we have identified an engineer to review the waterway calculations for the whole main drain of the town which will determine the size of the drain and the culverts."
