Daylight saving Lose hope, again. Nishant Singh Lautoka

Top-up cards

In reply to Kirti Patel's letter from October 28 there are no top-up cards on the bus.

For a top-up on the bus, the driver would need an extra terminal.

However, I believe what the driver should have are disposable cards of different values. They go from $2 up to $100 and when empty can't be recharged.

It becomes an item for the rubbish bin, not for the road though. Hope this helps.

Sinkhole risk

If you happen to travel from the Lautoka Hospital roundabout, taking the Drasa Ave route and before entering Drasa Primary School, you will notice the road surface being wet day in, day out for months.

This wet spot has been an issue of interest for motorists and pedestrians and also poses a huge risk.

Will this cause a sinkhole in the near future?

I strongly urge the proper authorities to please look into this.

Supervising kids

We are really near the end of the third term. Year 6 examination and Year 10 have completed theirs.

Now Year 12 have started and Year 13 are about to finish.

In a week's time Year 7 and Year 9 will have theirs.

Year 8 will finish theirs in a day's time.

By then there will be two weeks left for the holidays for our children.

The most difficult part is the six or seven weeks break from school.

We sincerely urge all parents to supervise their children well during the school holidays.

Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to all of you parents.

Strategic road

Would it be feasible to build a proper strategic road through the centre of Viti Levu?

This project would be similar to the Hibiscus Highway in Vanua Levu.

It shall meet all legal and environmental protocols and be from one city to another. It will decrease travelling time and traffic congestion.

It will decrease rural-urban drift and overcrowding in urban areas. It will renew interest in the agriculture sector and reduce the price of locally grown produce. It will decrease the unemployment rate.

It will increase the value of land in the interior.

The concept will foster productivity and economic growth. If it is not impossible, can there be a cost benefit analysis?
