THE construction of sea walls in some villages are among proposed projects discussed at the Macuata Provincial Development Board meeting in Labasa early this week.

The projects are proposed for Nakawaga Village on Mali Island, Yaro Village on Kia Island and the Wailevu river banks in Labasa.

Board chairman and divisional planning officer Northern Uraia Rainima said the projects were brought up during the district council meetings.

"For the sea wall on Mali, it is expected to cost about $50,000 and for the one on Kia, the cost is estimated at $100,000 and in Wailevu, it's at an average cost of $570,000," he said.

"The scope work for the project in Wailevu has been conducted by the RFMF."

Proposed projects for Macuata this year also include the construction of the Batiri, Nanenivuda, Nakavika, Nasuva, Batinikama, Vunikawakawa and Nasekula Village irish crossings.

For tourism, the board also proposed for the development of cultural centres in Labasa to promote indo-Fijian culture and tradition with an estimated cost of $50,000.

Mr Rainima said the project would also revive the iTaukei cultures and tourist entertainments for cruise ship tours.
