Focus on better roads

Salaseini Moceiwai

ONE of the focuses of the Fiji Roads Authority is to provide better roads to schools and health care facilities in Macuata.

Speaking at the Macuata Provincial Development Board meeting in Labasa yesterday, authority strategy and planning manager Christine Serreyn said their focus was aligned with government's move in ensuring every child in Fiji attends school.

"One of the government's priorities is to send every child in Fiji to school and FRA is committed to providing good and better roads for them," she said.

"This will mean the sealing of the roads to schools and health facilities so students and people are not affected by the dust.

"For a school situated in a very remote place, FRA will work on providing roads that will be acceptable.

"This is all part of the proposed projects we will be working on this year."

Meanwhile, Ms Serreyn said they would work towards providing good roads for the people of the North.
