POTholes on northern roads are now being fixed.
Fiji Roads Authority chief executive officer Neil Cook said current works would include the resealing of roads to prevent potholes and other failures.
"The public will see continued improvement with pothole crews working continuously over coming months to address this backlog of maintenance," he said. "What the public will also see is that potholes that get repaired do not reappear immediately, so over time we will see far less pot holes and those that do appear will not be left to grow to a huge size before being repaired."
Mr Cook said potholes left unattended for months and years was indicative of the scale of problems they now faced.
For the damaged portion of the Lomaloma Highway in Macuata, Mr Cook said short term repairs would be done this month to the narrow portion of the road that had been partly washed off by rain.
"Following that, a longer term solution will be planned and implemented. The north will see significant major works undertaken this year," he said. "The Buca Bay Rd construction continues. New major work is planned for Nabouwalu Rd also.
"In addition to these major construction projects, we estimate around 10km of rehabilitation works will take place."
