A new road marks a new beginning for Namata villagers in Bau Tailevu.
While welcoming Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama, village representative Peni Sokia says villagers had to carry their market produce and students had to cross rivers to get to school but with the new road, these hardships will be no more.
Sokia says this is the first government that has heard the cries of the villagers and made their dreams come true.
He says they suffered for many years especially during high tide and rainy weather where roads were flooded.
The new road together with the two new crossings cost over $3million.
