Residents of Dadakulaci Lane in Nadawa, Nasinu now have access to a newly built walkway aimed to improve crossing in the area.
The project is a joint initiative by the Nasinu Town Council and the Housing Authority of Fiji.
Resident, Abhay Chand said they were thankful to the Nasinu Town Council and Housing Authority for the newly-built walkway.
“Since I moved here in 2000 there was no crossing for those living in Drevula Street to this side, Dadakulaci. They used to put across a piece of timber and use it for crossing then,” Mr Chand said.
He said the temporary crossing endangered the lives of school children and residents especially during bad weather.
“Just before this walkway was built there were five electricity poles used for crossing. It was very dangerous when it used to rain and children would use the temporary crossing,” he said.
Mr Chand said a complaint was lodged by residents to the municipal council, which then saw the initiation of the Dadakulaci project.
The Council’s manager engineering, Jotame Uluitoga, said the project was worth $6000 and took the team a week to build.
“This walkway is part of our community development projects. We do a lot of these projects as per the need of the communities within our municipality,” Mr Uluitoga said.
A similar walkway is due to be opened in Caubati.
