Villagers in Nadi have praised the dredging works being carried out at the Nadi River.
Nawaka villager, Lalai Drui, says the works being carried out will ensure that villagers situated by the river are not affected during heavy rain.
Drui says they are happy about the dredging works as for many years they have been suffering.
He adds that with the excavation in full swing, hopes are high that it will put a stop to the major issue of flooding.
Narewa villager, Viliame Dawai, says they are one with this project as it will benefit them now and in the future.
