FANTASY Island Co Ltd managing director Abbas Ali is working with the Nadi authorities to ensure the excavation of soil from the Nasau area is done in a manner that does not disrupt residents.

Yesterday, Mr Ali met Nadi district officer Jiuta Waqavonovono to discuss issues raised by residents of Nasau near Mulomulo. Soil removed from the site is being used as landfill for the Fantasy Island project near Wailoaloa Beach.

Mr Ali said they would look at how the contractors were conducting work in the area.

Residents had complained about trucks repeatedly damaging water pipes and the unhealthy dusty air caused by the excavation.

Fiji Roads Authority CEO Neil Cook said they would also look into the issue.

how they could address the dust menace as an immediate measure.

"FRA engineers will investigate this to see what, if anything, can be done to mitigate the effects of higher use of the roads during the project," said Mr Cook.

"With respect to the dust nuisance, FRA will assess the situation and determine what can be done to alleviate the effects in consultation with the developer."

Mr Waqavonovono said plans to tarseal the roads were in the pipeline.
