WORK on Mamara Tasivarongo project awaits materials which are still delayed at Noro Port in a vessel that is waiting clearance before it can come over to the project site.
Premier for Guadalcanal Provincial Assembly Francis Sade confirmed this to Island Sun over the weekend.
“At the moment workers are waiting on the vessel that will bring building materials to kick start the work on site. The ship is currently berthing at Noro port in Western Province and is still undergoing clearance before will leave Noro for Honiara to unload the materials,” said Sade.
He said in terms of local workers to be part of this project, applications are open for interested individuals.
Sade said so far, they have 130 local applicants or Solomon Islanders. These successful applicants will start their interviews very soon for them to join the work force.
He said the project was delayed because of COVID-19 but they are hoping at the end of the year they should have up to 300-400 houses (and they should complete the hotel).
