FROM construction of new bridges to upgrading the main road curved with smooth sidewalks, the initiative is all in preparation for the 2023 Pacific games.
This was expressed by Mr Harry Rini who is the Director of Civil Engineering for the Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MID).
Speaking of feeder roads in the capital, he stressed that the state is deteriorating fast especially in areas like Kola Ridge, Naha, Vura and Lengakiki.
In this regard, Mr Rini proceeded to say that while his ministry is looking at ways of addressing the ordeal they are currently engaged in sealing work at Mbokonavera, Kaibia and Border area with the resources they have at the moment.
He adds that they are able to carry out this work with support of the national transport fund co-financed by SIG and DFAT.
In the case of continuity on major work along the main road, Mr Rini said that while they have included the road stemming from HCC to White River in their study plan with the partnership of ADB, JICA has hinted interest of engaging with MID on road work along fisheries area, further up along Kukum Highway.
He furthers that current road work should finish by November.
