THE upgrading of the Nabukelevu and Vunaniu crossing, the extension of the Waikalou floodgate and the extension of Namaquaqua Village are some of the major projects for Serua Province next year.

Other projects include the FEA grid extension to Tubarua and the completion of the Serua sea wall, and other projects most of which cost more than $10,000.

The Nabukelevu crossing as highlighted by the iTaukei Affairs permanent secretary Savenaca Kaunisela is estimated to cost $100,000 with the Vunaniu crossing costing $100,000.

Mr Kaunisela said the government was working towards improving the standard of living of people by offering bus vouchers, scholarships and development of schools.

He said to carry out the various developments for a province was not an easy task which was why the people of the province needed to manage their resources, revenue and time well.

He said the only way the province of Serua could move forward was through accountable and transparent leaders.
