The Fiji Roads Authority says their road work plans always include improving bus shelters, traffic lights, crossings and street signs.
Chief Executive, Jonathan Moore, says the attention should not only be given to the roads but other assets as well.
“The road network is a holistic thing, it’s not just bits here and bits there, it links to everything and everything links to it so you just can’t look at one thing in isolation without considering the outside.”
FRA General Manager Network Operations and Maintenance, Aram Goes says a study is being carried out that only focuses on public assets.
“There’s plans to look at wider Suva City Traffic flow study – a traffic assessments and a study of how we can do further predestination and enhancement and safety including amenity benefits for the down town Suva city for visitors and locals alike.”
Meanwhile, FRA will be carrying out a detailed transportation study later this year which will look at improving traffic movement.
The first study will be carried in the Capital City before FRA moves to Lautoka, Nadi, Labasa and other urban centres.
