The Commissioner Western Division is confident the division will be receiving funding for capital projects his office has proposed to Government for the next financial year.

The new Government financial year will be from August to July 2018.

Lieutenant Colonel Manasa Tagicakibau said these projects include the second phase of construction of the Nacula Health Centre in Yasawa and proposed health center in Votualevu and establishment of a health centre in Korovuto, Nadi.

He said right now they were moving very fast to complete some of the capital projects budgeted for in the third quarter of the current financial year.

“Some of these capital programmes are, rural housing, water projects for the rural community, some of the village access roads and we are also looking at bigger capital projects especially in the medical health sector,” Lt. Colonel Tagicakibau said.

He said they had proposed for the two health centers in Nadi to ease the congestion at the Nadi Hospital.

“These are some of the works that we are looking into. We have put up our proposal, now we are confident we will be getting funding for those capital works,” Lt. Colonel Tagicakibau said.
