A number of roadwork will now be put on hold during peak hours to ease traffic congestion says Fiji Roads Authority chief executive, Jonathan Moore.
At a press conference last week the FRA had said they will stop work during peak hours to ease traffic congestion at Princes Road and had also stated that they will be reviewing other roadwork’s on Kings Road.
Following the review, Moore says they have extended their instructions to their contractors; that all roadwork will be put on hold during peak hours from 6am to 9.30am and from 4pm to 6pm.
The roads that have had its roadwork pattern changed effectively are Princes Road, Nabua Roundabout, Ratu Mara Road- Kinoya Lights, Nakasi to Nausori Roundabout.
Moore says the FRA has changed the working patterns for at least until November 14th to ensure there are no disruptions going forward, especially for the school students.
The contractors have also been instructed to pull every piece of equipment and every member of their workforce off the road during peak hours to ease traffic flow.
Moore says they are looking at other roads on Kings Road to see if the same kind of implementation will work on them.
