Tramlines for public transport

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, August 05, 2014

THE Commissioner Western's office is working with stakeholders in the tourism industry to have discussions about the nationalisation of the Fiji Sugar Corporation tramline.

According to the Commissioner Western's Committee for the Better Utilisation of Land (CBUL) report for July, discussions were ongoing with industry partners and Ministry of Transport officials.

"The committee had formed a subcommittee led by the divisional planning officer western to look at the processes for nationalising the tramline," the report said.

"It was noted that the existing tramline, though under-utilised, can be optimaly used as a medium of delivery of heavy cargoes that are currently congesting the main highway.

"This includes FIJI Water bottles, cane, molasses, pine chips and minerals from newly established mining explorations in the Western Division."

The report also said other potential users of the tramline were travelling members of the public and tourists.

"The Western CBUL subcommittee has been advised to submit their first report by August 15 to the Divisional CBUL committee before it is presented to the national committee."
