Several roads have been closed this morning for Fiji Day Celebrations in Suva. Ratu Cakobau Road along Albert Park has been closed from 6am for the entire duration of the ceremonies at the park.
The public has also been advised to stay clear of Ratu Cakobau Road and nearby areas due to the use of the new ceremonial guns.
Part of Queen Elizabeth Drive will also be closed from this hour to allow for the military procession to march in to Albert Park.
The road will be cordoned off from the junction of Gladstone road near Suvavou House to the Bowling Club from 8am and will open once the procession has entered Albert Park.
Once the ceremonies are completed at Albert Park, the military procession will march through Suva up to the Flea Market which will see the closure of Queen Elizabeth Drive from the Bowling Club and the entire Victoria Parade from 11:30am.
The travelling public is advised to take alternative routes during this time as officers will be redirecting traffic in the capital city today.
