FRA engages more contractors to seal pot holes

December 25, 2016 8:34 pm

The Fiji Roads Authority has engaged fourty-eight local sub-contractors to help carry out restoration works on the roads.

Chief Executive, John Hutchinson, says these contractors have been working non-stop since December 16th.

“Doing a pot-hole repair is like putting a sticking plaster on a wound – it is temporary – we have to come back and do long term repairs, people ask the question why don’t we do long term repairs – we have a program of rehabilitation and re-seals and we working through that.”

Hutchinson adds they’ve brought in additional resources to carry out repairs as quickly as possible.

The FRA has fourty work crews out and about in the three divisions focusing only on pot-hole repairs.

“We have commenced night works particularly around the Central Business Districts in the Suva area. The work crews around Suva itself – we focused on Fletcher Road, Mead Road, Grantham Road, Khalsa Road, Queens Road, Nausori bypass and at night we will be focused principally in and around Toorak on Waimanu Road, Amy Street, Robertson Road, Gordon Street and so on.”

The crew has made significant progress about a week after work began and Hutchinson says things should improve in time to come.
