PEOPLE living in the outskirts of the Sugar City faced interruptions in bus services after rising floodwaters hit parts of the Western Division yesterday.

Pacific Transport Limited manager West Jaswant Singh said services were disrupted because of flooded bridges.

"At the moment, services in Lautoka are normal but areas such as Vaivai, Vuda Back Rd, Tawatawa and Navula are flooded so services there are not operating as normal for now," Mr Singh said.

Similarly, Dominion Transport Limited also put its operation on a halt between 9am and 12pm when the Nadi Bus Station was flooded.

"We were affected within that timeframe, but around 1pm, the waters started to recede and operations resumed as normal," said the company's finance manager, Monish Goundar.

Other bus companies have reported services to be normal.

Kadar Buksh Limited reservations officer Shamina Nisha said services to their customers were not affected.
