Bua chief Ratu Makutu Nagagavoka has raised concerns that villagers and students of Bua Lomanikoro now have to resort to crossing the river by outboard motor boats to reach their respective destinations.

Ratu Matuku said he planned to raise the issue with Government officials during the Bua District Council at Tiliva Village in Bua next Wednesday.

Ratu Makutu said it had been six months since their bridge at Bua Lomanikoro has been in this damaged condition.

“Students are mostly affected by this as they travel daily to school,” Ratu Makutu said.

He said not only the students but villagers as well who wanted to go to Nabouwalu or Labasa for business.

“Most of villagers are market vendors and they need a bridge so that it would easy for them to transport their produce to the Nabouwalu or Labasa markets.”

Ratu Makutu is pleading with the relevant authorities to repair the bridge as the whole village depended on it.

“I will also try and take this up to the responsible Government authorities so that they can come and inspect the bridge”.

Meanwhile, the Bua District Council will be attended by seven villages and Government department officials.
