FRA to establish 90km of new footpaths
January 16, 2018 6:01 pm
The Fiji Roads Authority has begun work on comprehensive upgrades to create better access on our roads.
FRA CEO – Jonathan Moore expects the current operations will be a welcome initiative for commuters with eighty-four bus bays to be upgraded and close to ninety kilometres of new footpaths to be established.
“We’re in the progress of renovating footpaths of about 15kms in 17 locations across the country, we’re at the tender stage where we’re awarding another 12 locations for another 24 km and there’s a future plan for this year to work on another 17 locations with another 50kms so that means that around, this year we should be in the progress or completing 90kms of new footpath.”
Moore says most of these footpaths will be in areas where there aren’t footpaths now so it will assist some of these more remote areas and in the cities to get people out in more decent conditions to schools and health centres.
This comes as the FRA carries out the installation of more than 2500 street lights across the country.
