Quarries to close

nasinu quarry
The Lomolomo and the Nasinu quarry will close on June 30 as they are not viable business operations.
As a result, 57 employees of the two quarries will be made redundant, confirmed Fiji Roads Authority chief Neil Cook today.

The workers will receive redundancy payout in accordance with the redundancy payment guidelines of the Public Service Commission and other policy decisions of the FRA Board.

According to the FRA, businesses were unable to deliver value for money to government and apart from this it also needed excessive maintenance that is no longer sustainable.
It has also been confirmed that the closure of operations in Nasinu is primarily due to the expiry of a lease of native land that was subsequently picked up by an adjoining operation – Basic Industries.
