ABOUT $400,000 has been secured by the Sigatoka Town Council for the market upgrade project, says special administrator Jay Whyte.

He said this funding was provided by the government.

"Work on this project will commence very shortly," Mr Whyte said.

"This project will result in the building of an overnight accommodation block for vendors from remote locations alongside the general upgrading of the public toilet facilities."

According to Mr Whyte, work was being carried out on the Rups Big Bear building as well.

"There is also development next-door to Rups Big Bear for a shopping arcade development.

"These developments will lift the profile of the town, create employment and show other potential investors that Sigatoka is a growing town with a positive outlook and unlimited potential.

"These developments will also provide the public with new shopping options."
