The Fiji Roads Authority has completed the sealing of 1.2kilometres of road in Nabouwalu, Bua to improve traction up the steel of Solevu Hill.
FRA General Manager Network Operations and Maintenance, Aram Goes says the work is part of a major focus to improve the public bus service route along the lower south coast of Vanua Levu.
He says the route between Nabouwalu Jetty and Savusavu serves many populated communities with travel along the unsealed Nabouwalu, Kubalau and Wailevu West Coast Roads being the shortest distance from the Jetty to Savusavu, however, many take the longer journey along the sealed upper Nabouwalu Road via Transinsular Road to Savusavu.
He adds due to difficult terrain and road conditions – public bus services have been challenging with services provided from both the Nabouwalu and Savusavu ends.
Goes says the FRA understands the communities need reliable public transport and they are focused on major upgrades of the route between Nabouwalu to Savusavu along the southern edge of Vanua Levu.
