ALL road engineers and road officials have been alerted and are ready for Tropical Cyclone Evan.

Department of Roads director Roads John Luveniyali said they were working with all their stakeholders on the preparations.

"All the divisions are ready and they have been fully alerted on TC Evan," Mr Luveniyali said.

He said they had also been drilled and advised on responses to counter any difficulties during the cyclone.

"We will keep monitoring the cyclone for our action."

He said there will be no road closures as of yet.

"We cannot confirm the roads that will be closed around Fiji because the cyclone has not struck yet."

He said roads would be closed depending on the severity of the cyclone and the damages it would cause.

"We can only confirm road closures when the cyclone strikes and will assess the damages after the cyclone."

He said they were closely monitoring roads and bridges around Fiji.
