Authority seeks partnership with transport owners

TRANSPORT companies are being urged by the Fiji Roads Authority to partner with them in identifying roads that need fixing.

Authority chief executive officer Neil Cook said constant updates between the parties could help keep transportation flowing and prevent the further deterioration of affected roads.

Responding to complaints from villagers in Vudibasoga, Mr Cook said work was expected to start soon.

"I have followed up with the contractors to see if the work could be brought forward and they are going to try and do so in the interests of getting the kids to school," said Mr Cook.

"The Vudibasoga road was programmed for maintenance work within the next week or so but I have spoken to the contractors about the need to address the problem.

"I would also encourage all transport operators to engage with FRA and our contractors to work together in identifying problem areas that need to be developed.

"This way we could take action rather than wait until a road is in such poor condition as to preclude buses operating on it."
