Travelling by boat to the mainland is now a thing of the past for hundreds of villagers along the Kiuva Kaba peninsula.
This follows the opening of the $6.2 million Kiuva Kaba road by Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama.
PM Bainimarama said that today is a special victory for the people of the Kalili, Vatani, Dromuna villages, who are now connected to the rest of their nation like never before.
“Local farmers will be able to get their produce to the Nausori Market more quickly, leaving more precious time for them to spend with their families.
“And the resort at Toberua can now receive their guests and supplies more efficiently, making this a more attractive tourism destination in a way that is sure to benefit your local communities.
“Travelling to school will also be much faster for students travelling to not only the Kaba District Primary School in Dromuna Village, but also to the schools along the existing road to Kiuva, Buretu and Nakelo.”
