The much awaited groundbreaking ceremony of the new Land Transport Authority office at Vatunibale in Labasa was carried out yesterday.

Chief guest Minister for Local Government, Housing, Infrastructure and Environment Parveen Kumar said the ceremony marked the official beginning in the construction of a new and improved LTA office which was valued at $3.8 million.

“Following the unfortunate fire incidents of 2009 and 2014, the Bainimarama Government and LTA embarked on a mission to build a technically and environmentally sound and safe office that will emanate positive vibes throughout,” Mr Kumar said.

“This project will involve the construction of a new administration building at a new site and the relocation of the technical ramp to higher ground.

“This is part of a strategic move to mitigate the damage caused by recurring floods in this area.”

This complex is professionally designed by Jetset Engineering and Chands Engineering and will be constructed to meet international standards, ISO9001 (International Standards for Quality Management Systems).

“The new technical ramp will be outfitted with a fully automated vehicle inspection system (FAMVIS) valued at approximately $700,000,” Mr Kumar said.

“This complex will complement investments that we have made in other LTA Offices in Nabouwalu, Seaqaqa, Savusavu and Taveuni where the design emphasis is on putting customers first.”

Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho who is the board member of LTA was also present at the event.
