Fiji Roads Authority Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Moore is expected to complete his three-year term at the end of September.

The FRA has confirmed in a statement that a period of transition has been agreed with Moore to facilitate a smooth handover and to ensure that a strong focus is continued leading the Organisation.

The Authority says Kamal Prasad, the current FRA General Manager for the Western Division, will assume the role of the Acting CEO on an interim basis and the Board of Directors will be conducting a comprehensive search process to identify the next successful candidate.

It says Moore joined the Authority in October 2017 and has made great contributions in developing the forward strategy of the Authority, implementing processes and procedures and providing a clear direction towards improving Fiji’s road infrastructure.

The Authority says in addition to his strategic leadership, Moore has overseen the replacement of more than 40 vulnerable and ‘at risk’ bridges and crossings, and the renewal of almost 200 kilometers of highway and arterial roads; as well as expanding the rural road network with numerous road expansions and ‘unsealed to seal’ projects.

FRA says Moore has also progressed major contracts that will see a further 40 bridges replaced over the next 4 years and more than 200km of upgrades to major roads throughout Fiji over the next 3 years.

The Board and Staff of the FRA have acknowledged Moore for his significant contributions during his three-year term.
