Prevent wastage

Param Singh, Navua
Saturday, November 04, 2017

With major road upgrading works, motorists are hopeful that it will cap the plug in their repair budget and will benefit the nation. However, of concern is how works are carried out without wisdom, prudence and integrity.

It is noted that roadworks personnel are very happy to disturb motorists with their lolly pop sign.

Also, heavy falls are noted on construction sites with a disregard for vehicles and the damage sustained coupled with burning of additional fuel in queues.

Motorists earlier this week had a sigh of relief as FRA advised its contractors to work on major roads at night, as in overseas.

I believe this would prevent wastage of public utilities as we hardly care if public facilities are misused thinking that it is not our problem as we do not foot the bill. If we each waste a little there will be a huge amount of resources wasted.

Fiscal spending must be monitored to avoid wastage and capex projects must be carried out with greater transparency.

Action must be taken now if wastage is discovered.

Let us all be responsible and unselfish and stop being wasteful.
