Fiji : Delay to housing project.

WORK on a housing project intended for Tacirua East Stage Two has been delayed until August.The initial announcement by the Housing Authority was that work would begin in June.

But yesterday, HA manager marketing and public relations Shirley Tagi said works would begin in August.

No reasons were provided on the cause of the delay in the start of works on the 169 acres of land which was also expected to create employment for 100 locals.

A commercial contract of $50million was signed in early June this year between the authority and the China Railway First Company Limited for low-cost housing.

The project is intended to provide homes for up to 1500 families.

Meanwhile, they continued to meet with defaulting customers to discuss payments of their loans in their efforts to recover outstanding arrears.

Acting board chairman for the authority Ratu Josateki Nawalowalo confirmed arrears were at about $40 million and that they had given the management up to the end of this year to recover 10 per cent of this sum.
