IT will take at least 21 months for a comprehensive study of the Nadi River to be completed by experts from Japan.

Nadi Town Council special administrator Robin Ali said the study by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) would determine the best flood control structures needed to reduce the impact of flooding in Nadi.

"A team of experts from Japan is currently conducting the study in the Nadi basin," he said.

"The team is part of a very detailed and comprehensive study funded by the Japanese Government titled 'The Project for the planning of the Nadi River Flood Control Structures Fiji'.

"The study will take at least 21 months to complete."

He said the study began after a memorandum of understanding was signed between JICA and government earlier this year.
