Road query

Friday, April 04, 2014

THE Fiji Roads Authority needs to prioritise its projects and consider those that will improve the standard of living of rural people.

Verata district representative Ratu Timoci Vesikula said the authority needed to construct roads that would help rural people develop their land rather than those that would not generate income.

Ratu Timoci said many road projects being undertaken in the province did not give proper access to rural people.

Authority spokesperson Jese Morgan Veibuli said one of their major focuses for Tailevu this year was the Nasau bridge in Wainibuka, in addition to plans to conduct maintenance work on the Ratu Kadavulevu Rd.

He said they would also continue to work on the Babavoce bypass.
