Motorists are urged not to cross any flooded roadways as a trough of low pressure continues to bring rain across some parts of the country.

The Fiji Roads Authority is advising the public that traffic is closed or restricted to certain roads in the Western Division due to flooding.

In a statement, FRA says it is better to wait until the water recedes or motorists must find alternate routes instead of taking unnecessary risks.
