Rest homes for market vendors

Salaseini Moceiwai

PLANS are afoot to build rest houses for market vendors in Savusavu and Labasa.

Town Special Administrator Vijay Chand said the proposed developments were among other capital projects eyed by the Labasa and Savusavu town councils this year.

"The plan to have rest houses in the two towns is well in line and we hope to start working on them as soon as the ongoing projects we are currently embarking on are completed," Mr Chand said.

"For Savusavu, we have completed the construction of a $50,000 food parcel selling area for the vendors and they can start using it now.

"There are also plans to construct a women's resource centre with funding of $24,000.

"The centre is funded by the Ministry of Women.

"Right now, we are just waiting for the completion of the $150,000 Savusavu Market extension."
