The Ministry of Employment has accepted an action plan from the Suva City Council to begin the re­moval process for the building materials found containing asbestos in the Suva Civic Centre.

In a release, the ministry said a New Zea­land specialist contracting firm, Contract Environmental, would begin the removal process for building materials found con­taining asbestos in the Suva Civic Centre on the evening of 15 June 2017.

The removal process will be supervised by the ministry and will not present any threat to the general public.

The Suva Civic Centre and the immedi­ate vicinity of the Town Hall Road en­trance to the Centre will remain closed throughout the removal process.

There will be no other restrictions on movement in place or directives for the closure of any schools, business houses or public buildings.

The ministry will work closely with Con­tract Environmental, the Department of Environment and the Suva City Council to properly dispose of the materials found to contain asbestos, in line with interna­tional best practice.
