The Fiji Roads Authority is urging members of the public when driving past the Lomaloma slip along the Transinsular Highway in Savusavu.
This is especially for motorists who are always vigilant.
The advice comes after a crane carrying a digger veered off the alternate temporary one-lane road built by the FRA.
According to witnesses, the crane went off road to make way for a bus coming down the hill heading towards Labasa.
The bus failed to slow down or stop causing the driver of the crane to lose control and veered off the road.
Traffic were held up for over an hour on Monday night as attempts were made to pull the crane from the ditch onto the road.
The FRA is also urging motorists to drive to the conditions of the road and keep a safe following distance at all times.
