More  than seven hundred school children of Lomary Catholic Primary and  Lomary Secondary School will now have their beachfront protected through  Government’s investment of a $100,000 seawall.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama issued a directive for the construction works for the seawall to begin immediately.

This follows a visit by the head of Government to the Lomary Catholic schools earlier this week.

Divisional  Commissioner Central, Laisenia Tuitubou said PM Bainimarama in his  visit emphasised the immediate construction of the Lomary seawall.

“The  Lomary seawall project is a result of one of the outcomes from the  tikina meeting which was presented to the development board in 2012,” Mr  Tuitubou said.

“We have signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Works who will construct the project at a cost of $100,000.”

Mr  Tuitubou said the seawall project would benefit surrounding communities  and villages in Lomary in the protection of their coastline.
