Ama­jor and ex­ten­sive up­grade is ex­pected at the main en­trance of the De­na­rau Is­land. De­na­rau Cor­po­ra­tion Lim­ited chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Ru­peni Fon­manu con­firmed the project to start next month.

“The in­ten­tion is to have the main en­trance ren­o­vated so when you get off the mil­lion dol­lars bridge, it would de­pict the set­ting of the multi-mil­lion dol­lar is­land,” he said.

“We ex­pect the project to start next month.

“We are fi­nal­is­ing the prices but we have the plans out al­ready.” Mr Fon­manu said the up­grad­ing of the en­try will in­clude putting ad­di­tional light­ing and a gar­den.

“So it’s more of the land­scape that will lift up the set­ting.” Mr Fon­manu added: “We can­not put a round fig­ure to it as of now be­cause we are still analysing the to­tal in­vest­ment.”
