SOME workers of the Fiji Roads Authority who were made redundant last year have been re-employed by new overseas contractors.

FRA manager change Mike Rudge said about 150 of the 1035 workers made redundant had secured new jobs.

Mr Rudge said about 100 workers had been re-employed in the Central and Eastern divisions and 50 in the Northern Division.

"The road works in the Central Division by the new companies have also started," he said.

The three companies granted contracts to carry out road works in the country are from New Zealand.

Higgins, Blacktop and Fulton Hogan Hiway Stabilizers were selected from 28 firms in the Asia-Pacific region after a tender process that began in May last year.

Higgins Contracting will carry out road works in the Western Division, Blacktop in the Northern Division and Fulton Hogan Hiway Stabilizers in the Central/Eastern Division.
