About 7.5 kilometres of drainage work is taking place along the road, which is Dravo Road is located off Ratu Kadavulevu Road, 10 kilometres from Nausori Town towards the Bau Landing.

Vuniani Ranatora, 50, a resident living along the Dravo Road says he and the more than 200 residents rely on the road for daily access.
