Thursday, July 31, 2014

THE jetty at Qarani in Lomaiviti is almost complete, says roko tui Lomaiviti Penijamini Velitokaduadua.

Mr Velitokaduadua says they are looking forward to the improvement of roads in the province.

He said poor road conditions were an issue in Levuka and on Koro.

Speaking at the opening of the Lomaiviti Provincial Council meeting at Nasova in Levuka yesterday, Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama assured the council that government prioritised rural and maritime areas.

He told the council meeting that total roadworks on Ovalau amounted to $148,000 and was carried out by the Fiji Roads Authority.

Mr Bainimarama explained that the FRA hoped to finish the roads on Gau and Koro this year at a cost of around $375,000.

With 57.3 kilometres of road in Koro, he said they hoped to complete about 12 km this year.

He said works to clear the road had started and would finish in October. For Gau, he said they had cleared 2km of land for the construction of a new road.

He said roadworks were underway every six to eight months.

Apart from roads, he said the government also invested on bridges around the country and also in the province. The three-day meet ended yesterday.
