Crossing upgrade

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, September 04, 2014

THE Nakama Irish crossing in Labasa will soon receive a major facelift now that a company has been contracted to upgrade work on the damaged road fixture.

MAH Enterprises, a local subsidiary of the New Zealand-based Herbert Group, has been awarded the contract for the proposed project. Company owner Campbell Diack said the work would take them about three months to complete.

"We will start the project next week and, hopefully, complete it in three months time," he said.

"Apart from this project, we have also been tasked to carry out upgrade works on the Namuavoivoi Bridge in Bua. Both the projects cost about $3million.

"The crossing in Nakama will be fully improved as we understand that it is usually washed away by floods during heavy rain or cyclones in the past."

Mr Diack said they would also employ locals to help them with the projects.
