Roadworks benefit people

THE old road at Navutukalo settlement in Naitasiri has been restored.

A Fulton Hogan Hiways statement last week highlighted that they continued to carry out roadworks with the help of the Fiji Roads Authority and government in rural areas in the Central and Northern divisions.

People living in the settlement do not have to worry about recurring landslides, boat rides, going on horseback or walking as a means of transportation because the road at Navutukalo has been repaired.

Widowed mother-of-three Adi Kamanalagi Vucago said the old road was overgrown with grass and was in very poor condition that it became completely unusable.

Adi Kamanalagi said no buses or carriers serviced the area, with people mainly going on horseback, boats or walking to get to the health clinics and to school.

"The workers from the road company are doing an excellent job, you will see them pour gravel and grade the road when it rains," Adi Kamanalagi said.

"We now have access to bus service that is easier and affordable and Fulton Hogan Hiways has made it easier for all of us in the settlement."

Adi Kamanalagi and her children had a farm in the settlement where they raised cows, planted kava, vudi, bananas and taro which they then sold at the Suva market.
