Infrastructure development

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, July 11, 2014

LABASA special administrator Vijay Chand has reminded taxidrivers that infrastructure development in the northern town will happen at the right time.

Responding to concerns raised by the members of the Labasa Taxi Association during a discussion yesterday, Mr Chand said they were trying their best to accommodate their requests.

Some of the concerns raised by members included the relocation of the taxi stand, road upgrade works in town and the bus stand, among others.

"Developments are slowly evolving in Labasa and the FRA has been tasked to do these projects," he said.

"This includes the council road upgrade works, street and traffic lights as well as the road signs to name a few.

"I am pleading with the drivers to understand that the FRA looks after the whole of Fiji and not only Labasa. The authority has a timetable to follow and I am certain that projects for Labasa have also been earmarked for developments soon."

Mr Chand said they were working closely with the FRA to have those projects up and running.

FRA CEO Neil Cook earlier said they would conduct full pavement works at the Labasa bus stand and improve the road conditions in town.
