A $2.6m government project currently taking place in Bua Province will benefit a population of 400 Fijians living there, including students.

The Namuavoivoi Unsealed Road project in Nasarawaqa, Bua, is 23 kilometres from the Nasarawaqa main road with two villages and one settlement in between.

The provincial administrator Bua, Inoke Tagicakibau, said the conditions of the road made it impossible for the public to use.

He said works carried out on the road would allow the public living around it to easily access nearby towns and basic amenities including health services and schools.

“This road is the shortcut to Kubulau towards Savusavu and also to Wainunu in Bua,” Mr Tagicakibau said.

He said the only form of transportation used by Fijians living there were buses and carriers.

The past conditions of the road often made travel difficult for the villagers especially those living in Namuavoivoi Village.

The project is expected to be completed in November this year under the Fiji Roads Authority.
