Railway concerns

Luke Rawalai
Thursday, May 29, 2014

THE railway system in the North will be up and ready before the cane crushing season begins, says Fiji Sugar Corporation executive chairman Abdul Khan.

Mr Khan has assured canefarmers in the North the rails would be ready for cane delivery, come the crushing season which is expected to begin next month.

He was responding to concerns highlighted by farmers in the Wainikoro cane belt area who said the present condition of the tracks in the area needed improvement and maintenance.

He said rail works would be completed before the crushing season starts.

Farmers had also queried about the cane payment and the need to increase the amount so farmers could meet the expenses they incurred.

Wailevu canefarmer Hari Chand said the payment needed to be done before the next cane crushing season so they could prepare themselves and their labourers.

Responding to these concerns, Mr Khan said payment was made out earlier this year.
