FARMERS in Wailevu Cakaudrove, the largest district in the country say that they will support any government that improves the conditions of farm roads within the district.
The Masi Tubulevu, Ratu Epeli Ganilau, raised his concern on the condition of farm roads within the district saying their people needed farm roads improved so they could easily transport their farm produce to the market.
He said cultivating those produce was one thing and transporting them to main roads was another burden that people still struggled with.
"Some have to work five kilometres to their farms and carry root crops on their back to the main road," Ratu Epeli said.
"Others have to leave their families and go camp out in these farms for weeks because going to and from their farms is hard.
"We are happy with the current roadworks being done by the Fiji Roads Authority on the Wailevu West Coast road but if they could also sort out our farm roads, it would be really good."
Naviavia villager Salabogi Salauca said the problem was widely faced within the district and people often found it hard to access nearest markets.
In an interview last month, FRA chief executive Neil Cook said they would address conditions of access roads and farm roads after they dealt with major roads around the country.
He said the historic practice by past road makers were to go and cut roads instead of building them so they could be maintainable.
Mr Cook had said this was a process FRA was totally eliminating because it aimed to make roads that would last.
