The Fiji Roads Authority is concerned with overgrown vegetation, and household waste on the road reserves.
The FRA is requesting the public not to plant crops and store personal items such as building materials on the road reserve.
General Manager Network Operations and Maintenance, Aram Goes, says they will not take any liability if the crops or property are damaged during mowing or roadside drainage clearing activities.
In addition, he said the drains on the road reserve are often overgrown and is frequently covered in household rubbish, which not only causes pollution but it also creates extra work for the contractors.
Goes says the FRA does not encourage residents undertaking planting on the road reserves due to a number of safety reasons.
