“There is no point speeding up the work and you lose a life. I’m going to make sure that I’m able to restore very safely with zero injuries and that’s the way we work. We have our priorities how we do the Health centres first, the water pumping stations, the CBD and then we get into the residential areas.”

He says restoration for the entire grid in Savusavu is almost 90 percent complete and about 60 percent is left for Labasa, Seaqaqa and Dreketi.

Patel highlighted the rainy weather has delayed work in the past few days.
