Natila villagers welcome access road

TIMOCI VULA
Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Update: 12:48PM VILLAGERS of Natila in Tailevu are now anticipating better access to essential public services and markets following the completion of stage one of their access road.

The villagers had not had any access road for the past 49 years, according to the Fiji Roads Authority, which meant villagers had had to walk miles and travel by boat to reach hospitals, towns and other facilities.

Village headman Iliesa Kadavu said all those days were now behind them.

He said the new pilot cut road had given them a new vision as they anticipated the full completion of the access road.

Fiji Roads Authority acting CEO Robert Sen said after learning about their challenges, they were determined to complete the new 1.3km access road project, which would help elevate their standard of living.
