GOVERNMENT looks after 5000 kilometres of road nationwide.
While 2000km of these roads are tarsealed, works are in progress to improve and repair some of the State-owned roads.
Works on various roads around on Viti Levu and Vanua Levu were estimated at $268million with funds from the Exim Bank of China and Exim Bank of Malaysia.
Fiji Road Authority spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the Queens Rd rehabilitation work from Sigatoka Town to Rakiraki cost $80million.
He also said the Buca Bay Rd or Hibiscus Highway on Vanua Levu cost $80 million.
"The first 10 kilometres is around $30million," he said.
"From Naqali to Vunidawa is about 19 kilometres and is worth $55million.
"Sigatoka Valley Rd is about 15 kilometres and is worth $40million while Moto Rd in Ba is about five kilometres and is worth $13million."
Minister for Public Utilities, Works and Transport Colonel Timoci Natuva earlier said the annual cost of periodic maintenance on our roads cost some $24million, against the $12million his ministry was allocated annually for those road upgrading works.
He also said the $8million collected through road user levies annually was not sufficient for all road maintenance works.
