ʻEua islanders have applauded road maintenance currently carried out by Tonga’s Ministry of Infrastructure.

The Ministry claimed roads in the island had been left in poor condition and without proper maintenance for many years.

In a meeting with ‘Eua district and town officers last week the Minister of Infrastructure, Hon. ‘Etuate Lavulavu said “more road maintenance work” would  be carried out, a statement from the ministry said.

The statement also quoted the Hahake Town Officer Mr. Tuifio as saying, “our tears have been wiped off by this marvellous work” taken by the government.

Tuifio said it has been for many years people of ‘Eua had bad roads.

Hon. ‘Etuate Lavulavu was in ‘Eua last week with ‘Eua MP who is also Tonga’s Minister for Revenue and Custom., Hon. Tevita Lavemaau to take a look at the road maintenance project.
