THE Matokana Village Rural Road project is on track for opening in December 2018.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) CEO Jonathan Moore who visited the ongoing road construction site in Matokana said the scheduled opening in December was only possible weather permitting now that the project was well over half way through the program.

“It is good to see the 14km of the Matokana Village Access Road work well underway. Previously, there was no road and just mountainous terrains and forests, however, we have now seen vehicles going through to Matokana,” Mr Moore said.

“We also saw a Health Ministry vehicle providing medical services to the children of Matokana.”

He reaffirmed his commitment to provide access to the isolated communities and deliver the infrastructure needed to improve livelihoods for all Fijians.

Matokana Village is in the mountainous range of Nadroga/Navosa region.

The project site commences at Stage 1 at Nawairabe Village junctions and ends at Matokana Village.
