Facelift for bus station

Litia Vulaidausiga

NADI'S main bus station will undergo a restructure to tighten safety measures in the busy terminal.

"We do not want a repetition of what happened in Suva," said Nadi Town Council special administrator Robin Ali, referring to the fatal May 6 accident where a woman and her three-year old daughter were crushed between two buses at the Suva bus station.

Plans for the Nadi bus terminal include railed crossings for pedestrians and an upgrade to its public convenience.

Mr Ali said consultants were looking at the bus stand's notorious flooding problem and would write up a report on their findings, as opposed to relying on Band-Aid solutions.

"Lots of surveys need to be done, a band-aid solution wont solve it," he said.

The cluster of heavily-populated peri-urban areas surrounding the town and their poor waste disposal contributed to blocked drains, Mr Ali added.

Presently, garbage collected from Nadi's municipality is carted to Lautoka, although the town council is considering a landfill area at Nalovo, outside Nadi, to cater for this.
