Project deadline

THE Fiji Roads Authority is working towards completing at least 60 per cent of their projects by June 30.

Authority capital works manager Ian Hunter said all government departments and agencies, including FRA, were requested by government to bring forward as much of their program as possible.

Mr Hunter said government had a target and they were doing their best to perform and bring out the right results by then.

"All our projects are competitively tendered so the best way for FRA to bring forward expenditure is to get contractors engaged early. The remaining 40 per cent of the projects will be completed by progress of the contracts."

Meanwhile, China Railway First Group said in a statement that it had so far completed 40 per cent of the projects between Dreketi and Nabouwalu.

It stated about 49 per cent of the Lomaloma Trans-insular has been completed so far between Savusavu and Labasa.

Both projects are valued at $233.4million.
