Villagers of Nasau District get new $2.1 million crossing

February 3, 2016 5:11 am

The Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama this morning commissioned the Vanuakula crossing in Ra.

The $2.1 million bridge will benefit nine villages in the district of Nasau, who will now enjoy reliable access to the main roads.

Bainimarama says the crossing has been designed and constructed to last a long time and to withstand rainy weather and flood conditions.

He says it is important to ensure that people in the Rural and Maritime communities have proper access to education, health care, water and good roads much like our urban dwellers.

The crossing was built by the Fiji Roads Authority.

The Prime Minister is continuing his tour of the Western division this week.
