Its a million smiles for about 300 people in Wainidinu Settlement after the commissioning of their new access road.
The project for the community access road was originally started by the members of the Wainidinu Settlement before they requested government’s assistance in 2015.
While sharing a brief background of the settlement, Settlement Headman, Apakuki Tabuakoro says that they have been trying to find a way to develop their access road for a long time.
Tabuakoro and his family came into Wainidinu when he was just about 4 years old and said that they usually walk amongst the mangrove swamps to get to the main road.
“It was a real struggle and we never imagined that one day we would have this access road” said Tabuakoro.
While delivering his address, Acting Commissioner Central, Luke Moroivalu thanked the people of Wainidinu and their unity to start this project.
Moroivalu says that the community of Wainidinu have showed courage and determination to overcome their struggles to come together for community building.
The total cost of the new Wainidinu Community Access Road is $31,014.
The community had started off by constructing 200 metres of access road before the government finished off the project.
