April 24, 2019 1:14 pm

31 roads around the country remain closed due to flooding.

This includes 17 roads in the Central Division, 11 in the Western and 13 in the Northern Division.

Fiji Roads Authority Chief Executive Jonathan Moore says some roads and crossings have been washed away and is urging people to be patient as repair work and assessment is being carried out.

He is urging drivers to be cautious while driving and not drive across flooded creeks, crossings and rivers.

Moore says there is a high risk of landslide and drivers are reminded to be aware.

Moore says the rain has also resulted in an increase in the number of potholes and their contractors are working on resolving this.

Meanwhile, FRA is closely monitoring several roads for closure.

People can contact FRA on 5720 for any assistance.
