Minister for Rural Maritime Development and Disaster Management, Sakiasi Ditoka says people faced difficulties in accessing the normal routes to carry out their daily chores such as going to sell their produce, going to school and shops.

He says villagers are overjoyed and life has become much easier for them following the commissioning of the project.
