“The first section we will do is the extension of the existing four-lane around Lomolomo Village, Lautoka. So that is the first area of work. That should finish by the end of this year and then we will start work on the other areas.”
Moore says existing bridges will also be replaced.
The upgraded road is expected to ease traffic congestion between Lautoka and Nadi.
