THE Fiji Roads Authority has been allocated $422million in the 2013 Budget, an increase of $122million compared to what it got for 2012.

The allocation has increased by $182million compared to what was given in 2012. Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said Fiji needed to build the capacity of FRA to plan and maintain good roads for the nation. The $422million will not only focus on roads alone but also on bridge works around the country.
