Good news for students

Salaseini Moceiwai

STUDENTS residing across the Korotari Forestry Rd in Labasa can now wade through shallow waters to get to school and return home, thanks to Fairdeal Earthmoving Contractors Ltd.

The company reinstated the crossing over the weekend.

This newspaper earlier highlighted how students cross the river in their homewear every morning and change into their uniforms before walking to school because of the deep river condition.

Company project manager Lawrence Kumar said officials walked the mile to pave the way for the students and residents in the area.

"We had already liaised with residents and we informed them that we were going to reinstate the crossing as soon as the rainy weather clears," he said.

"There must have been a communication breakdown but now we have fixed the problem."
