TALKS have continued between Fiji Roads Authority and the management of New Zealand-based Blacktop Construction Ltd after it went into receivership.
Authority CEO Neil Cook said they would not comment further on the issue.
While the two companies continue with talks, another local security firm has raised its concern over unpaid services.
In an email sent to this newspaper yesterday, City Security Services stated Blacktop owed them more than $55,000. The company provided security at Blacktop's stations and depots in the North.
This week, another company, Begg's Hire Services, said in an interview Blacktop owed them $50,000.
Company director Mohammed Begg said the road contractor used his truck to do work in Savusavu and only paid for work carried out in the month of January and February.
Questions sent to the company in Auckland remain unanswered.
The FRA has given Blacktop Construction Ltd 10 days to satisfy the required standard of work performance after it went into receivership.
"Whatever the receiver decides, the FRA will ensure that roadworks in the Northern Division continue. We will stand ready to deploy all necessary resources to the Northern Division as the situation demands," Mr Cook had said.
"Over the course of the next few days, we will be in constant talks with the receiver and will provide regular updates."
