EXPECT to see a group of Territorial Force soldiers out on the roads from today assisting the Land Transport Authority track down motorists who breach traffic rules around the country.

LTA spokesman Alfred Wiliame said the soldiers were part of the road marshal club who would assist LTA officers around the country this festive season.

"We will start tomorrow (today) not only with TF soldiers but other members of the club who are members of the public and our work is to ensure a safe road for all during this festive season," he said.

Mr Wiliame said teams would be spread across various centres around the country.

"The program of working with road marshal club members should end after the festive season."

Mr Wiliame said assistance from club members greatly helped LTA officials.

"They joined the club around mid-year and this festive season. We will work with them to monitor our roads."

"They will also be part of the team in Vanua Levu and their assistance will help us a lot in monitoring our roads."

Mr Wiliame said LTA was also working with the police on certain programs tailored for the festive season.
