THE Nadi Town Council spent an extra $35,000 to complete the market extension.

Acting executive secretary Dilaite Nakalevu said the project was expected to be completed next week.

"The completion has been delayed by almost four weeks because of some issues with Fiji Electricity Authority and redesigning of the cantilever," she said.

"We are currently looking for sponsors for 15 durable bunkers for the hostel.

"The total cost of the project upon completion will be $839,000."

Meanwhile, a team of experts from Japan is in the country conducting a 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.

"Basically the project will be looking at the best flood control structures needed to reduce the impact of flooding in Nadi.

"The team is temporarily hosted by Nadi Town Council in its complex," Ms Nakalevu said.
