“The track is ready now and we are just waiting for the line for the marking and we will be opening in up in three weeks from now.”

He further notes that, equipped with the upgraded facilities, the nation is well-prepared to host the 2031 Pacific Games.

Meanwhile, Sphynx Solutions, the Australian-based engineering company that is contracted for the project confirms that the project is scheduled to be handed back to the Fiji Sports Council by January 26th.
