TAVEUNI Pacific Transport manager, Prakash Sami has voiced his concerns at the deplorable road condition on the island saying little has been done to address it.
Mr Sami said bus routes on the island were still running normally but it was at a risk to the safety of passengers who travelled on the south and north end of the island.
"Bridges and the general road condition need to be repaired permanently as most works that are done are temporary and could be washed away during the next heavy downpour," Mr Sami said.
"There has been no work on the gravelled roads and it is a risk to run our buses since we also transport students on a daily basis to their schools.
"Many steep hills have very loose gravel and it is very dangerous to our buses and passengers who travel at the south and north tip of the island where the road conditions are really poor," he said.
Meanwhile, Fiji Roads Authority chief executive officer Neil Cook said road maintenance works had begun on the island.
He said there was a backlog of maintenance works on the island that had been neglected for some time which was continuing.
