Solevu Road upgrade to improve Bus access
May 1, 2018 5:22 pm
A 12 member Fulton Hogan Hiways team is carrying out much needed road stabilization work in Solevu, Bua.
Construction Foreman, Meli Kapiwai, says they are doing traction seal, by adding a cement base to add strength to the road itself.
He explains that cement stabilization uses a higher percentage of stiff and rigid materials, making the road surface more durable and resistant during prolonged wet conditions.
He says previously even during a slight downpour, buses would struggle up the steep hill because of the slippery conditions.
The road is the main thoroughfare for up to 10 villages in the area that travel frequently to Nabouwalu as well as to Savusavu, via Naibalebale.
