Kings Road is closed
December 19, 2016 1:34 am
Kings Road is closed to all traffic between the new Chinese Bridge and the Flying Prince Service station in Rakiraki.
Kasavu Road near the Baulevu Road Junction on Kings Road is open to light vehicles only and operating as single lane with potential for full closure if there are further landslides.
The Fiji Roads Authority says the Kasavu slip site has been under observation since yesterday and inspections this morning have identified the need to restrict movement to protect the public.
The FRA says the slip has taken a great portion of the road and it isn’t wide enough to allow larger vehicles including heavy goods vehicles, buses and carriers through at the moment.
All of Queens Road is open – but only single lane in some places.
Some more roads in Rakiraki are closed due to flooding.
Waibula Bridge on the North Coastal Road in Taveuni is now open, however people are urged to drive with care.
