FRA to review roadwork time on Kings Road

The Fiji Roads Authority is looking at reviewing the time of roadwork along the Suva – Nausori corridor during peak hours.
Chief Executive, Jonathan Moore says the only road that will have its roadwork pattern changed effectively is Princes road.
Moore says this is due to contractors having a slight delay in resurfacing the road yesterday which caused temporary traffic.
“We’re looking at other roads like Kings Road and other roads around Suva to see if the same kind of implementation can be working there as well but those don’t have the same mandatory closure with vehicles of the road. There will be times where parts of those roads will not be worked on and if we need to extend those periods we will extend it just to make sure it flows more smoothly but to clarify completely Princes road was the priority and we’re reviewing other roads in the Nausori corridor today and over the next week.”
FRA has instructed contractors not to have their workers or equipment on Princes Road between 6am to 9am and 4pm to 6pm.
This is also to ensure the safety of the travelling public.
