A black spot treatment programme will be initiated by the Fiji Roads Authority and Police Force.
This is to review the most dangerous locations and engineer solutions to increase the safety for road users.
FRA Chief Executive Jonathan Moore says they have identified a number of black spots throughout the country.
The FRA has assisted the Force with 58 new traffic police signs to improve road safety.
Over the next two to three years the FRA will be dedicating $15m into providing necessary signs to help save lives.

Deputy Commissioner of Police, Rusiate Tudravu says this is a timely boost to their traffic operation considering that festive season is just around the corner.
He says the signs will enhance the quality of the operation by brining discipline on the road and will help create safer roads.
The road death toll stands at 59 compared to 65 for the same period last year.
