Road access affects service

BUS operators in the Western Division are being urged to contact the divisional road engineer west if there are any issues with road access.

Fiji Roads Authority's manager change Mike Rudge said the divisional road engineer west, Joji Mate, would co-ordinate with the Lautoka City Council to determine who was responsible and ensure that the matter was addressed.

"Of course, this will all become much easier from January 1 when the FRA takes over all roads in the country," he said.

"In the meantime, bus operators who have issues can contact Joji on 9904627 and he will deal with the issue."

Mr Rudge's comments came in response to concerns raised by Pacific Transport Limited acting manager west Sachandan Sami that bus services to some parts of Lautoka were hampered because of fallen powerlines and trees.

"The worst hit areas are Vuda, Wairabetia, Navula and Vaivai," said Mr Sami.

"There are also issues at Tavakubu which we hope are looked into as soon as possible.

"The reason we are raising these concerns is because people need to get to the city to do shopping and we are not able to provide this service because of issues that are beyond our control," he said.
