THE Land Transport Authority will be holding meetings with the Fiji Roads Authority from early next year in their bid to address the issue of speeding in the country.
The two departments will be working in consultation to determine whether the national speed limit should be reviewed.
"The increasing of the speed limit will depend on the Fiji Roads Authority, we will consult them regarding that, they will have to tell us if it is OK or not to increase the speed limit, and right now I understand that they are having a transition so we are expecting to have dialogue with them from next year to discuss the issue," LTA spokesperson Alfred Wiliame said.
He said there would be changes taking place but this would depend entirely on FRA.
"FRA will soon be responsible for all roads around the country, so we will wait for a full report from them regarding the road condition and it will be this report that we are going to use to establish whether there is a need to increase the speed limit," he said.
Mr Wiliame said they would only comment further on the issue after the meetings between the LTA and FRA.
