The recent upgrading of Nasarava Road in Labasa by the Fiji Roads Authority has significantly improved access for farmers especially during rainy weather.
Sugarcane farmer, Rajendra Kumar says the road was located in a low-lying area which often got flooded and was also dusty at times.
He says now the road is wider and once work on the drainage is completed they will no longer have flooding issues.
The road, which is located eight kilometres out of Labasa Town, caters for sugarcane farmers, root crop farmers as well as 2000 residents.
The work is part of the periodic road maintenance programme to provide access to people in the Central, Northern and Eastern Divisions.
