In an effort to curb urban drift in the Northern division, the Local Government Ministry is working on developing a satellite town in Seaqaqa.
Minister Premila Kumar says the government wants this done quickly.
Kumar adds the plan is to maintain the beauty of Seaqaqa and offer a lot more to the people.
“The intention is to put up a market, bus station, carrier stand and other facilities that go along with it and also to develop the sports field or the open space that we have. We would like to provide all the services to a small place like Seaqaqa.”
Seaqaqa is the second satellite town being developed by government in Vanua Levu, the first being Nabouwalu with work expected to complete by mid next year.
