Plea for help with transport

THE lack of bus services for villagers of Dawara in Cakaudrove has prompted a plea for government intervention to help them with transportation.

The issue was raised by the villagers during a talanoa session with the Prime Minister at Ratu Emeri Catholic Primary School in Bua on Wednesday.

The villagers claimed the bus company servicing the area was only licensed to operate in an area that doesn't include their village.

They told Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama those who wanted to go to town or travel to other places needed to wake up as early as 4am and walk for about one and half hours to where the bus stops daily.

The villagers said this was exhausting for the elderly, young and pregnant women.

The PM requested the villagers to write a letter of request to LTA to permit a licence to the bus company to extend its service to Dawara.
