Improved road conditions in Navua

Close to 300 residents including vegetable farmers of the Rovadrau community in Navua now have an improved road.
Fulton Hogan Hiways Taunovo Depot Supervisor, Remesio Naqoro says the Nakaulevu Road is in a low-lying area that has always been prone to flooding whenever there is a heavy downpour and raising the height of the road helps the water to flow off the pavement and into the roadside water channels.
Naqoro says since blocked drains also contribute to flooding incidences, they have also cleared debris and excess vegetation from the waterways.
The 1.9 kilometer Nakaulevu Road is located approximately five kilometers from Navua Town.
The work, which was carried out by a six-man crew, included clearing blocked drainage on both sides of the road, and overlaying the whole road with a layer of 150mm compacted crushed aggregate.
