Work on Nabouwalu to Dreketi Road

from Peceli,
It's good to see something happening in Bua because certainly this road needs to be done.   When does the loan have to be paid back?

Work on highway progresses

THE Dreketi-Nabouwalu Highway upgrade is progressing well since work started four months ago and is expected to be completed within its planned timeframe.
China Railway First Group Limited spokesman Donald Singh said a total of 57 sets of earthwork machines and 49 dump trucks were brought into the country specifically for the project.
Mr Singh said heavy excavation works were in progress and did not interfere with the flow of traffic along the highway.
"The project employs 166 Chinese (management and technicians) and 305 locals who do technical, managerial and construction labour works," he said.
"The 70-kilometre road has been split into three sections of 23km of roadwork portions where work is continuing simultaneously.
"So far the company has carried out about 70km of land clearing. This has been done in the three sections."
Mr Singh said they had cleared land out for places where the realignment of roads would be carried out.
Work on 14 bridges and 209 culverts along the highway, he added, had started and these would be built to high standards.
"The new highway will be 10.3 metres wide in diameter which will give vehicles passing along the area greater space."
The $228million project, whose funding has been sourced from the Export-Import Bank of China, is expected to be completed by 2015.

Question in regards to Voice Recording Work

Hello Peceli and Wendy!

Apologies in advance if this request sounds vaguely strange, I am working for a translation company based in Melbourne and I am specifically looking for 2 native Fijian speaking people (1 male, 1 female) to help us with a recording job.

I noticed that you blog a lot of Fijian related issues and current affairs, not to mention that your profile states that you are born in Labasa, Fiji. Again, I apologise for this rather random request, but I was hoping if I could get some insight and contacts of the local Fijian community in Melbourne, Australia in order to aid us in our project.

The work requirements are quite simple. We need 1 male and 1 female native Fijian speaker to read a script in the language, and this will be recorded in a recording studio that is based in North Melbourne. The scripts are fairly short, and we aim to have everything to be done in within an hour’s time.

We are currently uncertain as to where we are capable of tapping into the Fijian community in Melbourne, if you are able to provide us some aid in this matter I will truly appreciate it.

My name is Wei, and you can reply to this email or call me back at 03 9830 7230 for further details in regards to this.

Thank you very, very much in advance and I hope I can speak to you soon.

Best Regards,
