Drivers, roads affect service

SOME areas in the Central and Eastern divisions will face transportation problems as bus services will not resume normal operations until later in the week.

Fiji Bus Operators Association acting president Virendra Kewal said: "Most of the drivers spent the day cleaning their homes after the cyclone and so the bus services depend on the availability of drivers. For Island Buses Limited we have made announcements on the radio and contacted our drivers to return to work," Mr Kewal said.

He said the LTA had also given bus operators permission to continue normal operations.

"Although we have been given the green light by LTA, some areas can still be affected because of the poor road conditions.

"For some roads that have debris and trees blocking the road, we will not be able to operate in those areas until they're all cleared."

Mr Kewal said from today bus services should be back to normal.

LTA media officer Alfred Wiliame said bus operations were gradually moving towards normalcy with bus operations expected to be in full operation towards the end of the week.
