CONCERNS raised by motorists in the Western Division about the manner in which Malaysian road contractors Naim Engineering Construction Limited were conducting repairs have been addressed by the Fiji Road Authority.
Motorists have raised the issue of incomplete roadworks and ripped sections with this newspaper, citing the inconsistencies as road hazards with the potential to cause serious accidents ù especially for those travelling at night.
Divisional Road Engineer West Munsami Naidu said the firm had been informed by FRA to discontinue with fragmented road-making practices.
"Government has stopped Naim from ripping sections and leaving them idle. They have now been informed that roads being rehabilitated have to be completed fully before moving on to another section," he said.
Naim Engineering was granted a contract to rehabilitate 106 kilometres of roads in the country in June 2010. The project, funded by a $US40million ($F74.4m) loan from the Export-Import Bank of Malaysia was expected to take two years to complete.
