A $60MILLION bus station redevelopment project is expected in Suva with works on the design phase of the project commencing next week.

Suva special administrator Chandu Umaria said the council was working closely with the government on the new Suva market and bus station redevelopment project.

"The project will have more stalls, supermarkets, retail shops, accommodation, conference centre, a new air-conditioned fish market, cool storage and other amenities," Mr Umaria said.

"Works on the design phase of the project commences next week and by September, 90 per cent of the design phase will be completed."

He said the council was in the process of installing CCTV cameras for security purposes both for vendors and shoppers in a few days time at a cost of $100,000.

"The cruise liners' arrival in Suva has increased as you all know the council, in partnership with Health Ministry and the World Health Organisation, had declared Suva as a smoke free city," Mr Umaria said.

"For smokers, we will provide smoking booths in all designated areas and for mothers, the council has provided a designated area for mothers feeding and change room inside the market."
