Nabalebale Village in Savusavu has had a facelift with a rehabilitated length of road, extended bus bays and footpath, new speed humps and signage.
The village which is home to about 300 families is located near the Wailevu West Coast-Savusavu junction on the Transinsular Road.
Fulton Hogan Hiways Renewal Manager, North, Scott Wilkinson says the work at Nabalebale is part of the extensive rehabilitation work the company is doing in the North in support of the Fiji Roads Authority.
Wilkinson says the entire road infrastructure in the village was a mess and it needed a rehabilitation.
About 800-metres of the road was replaced.
He adds the road the crew also replaced four “deteriorating” speed humps, with two “standard speed humps” and positioned on each end of the village.
There are two bus bays on each side of the road in the village.
These have been deepened for the safer pickup and drop off of passengers as has a further two bus bays on its outskirts that service the village health centre.
Wilkinson says the footpath has been extended to allow for a pedestrian crossing.
Fulton Hogan Hiways has also introduced new road signage.
