IF you’re planning to travel down to Nadi from Suva along the Queens Rd tomorrow, take note of temporary lane restrictions and road works .

The Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) has advised that due to a road drop out, a section of Queens Rd will be reduced to a single lane in Bavu Nadi, next to the Bavu Road intersection for repair works.

FRA in a statement said that works were expected to commence from 7am, Thursday June 21 and is scheduled to be completed by 3pm, Friday 22 June.

“The FRA contractor will close off the Nadi bound lane to repair the damaged section,” FRA stated.

Location details:

  • The drop out is on the road shoulder of the Nadi bound lane and is 300m (towards Sigatoka) from the sinkhole that was repaired on Friday (June 15).
