NEW Zealand-based road contractor Blacktop can end its contract in the North if the Fiji Roads Authority confirms new arrangements soon.
FRA chief executive Neil Cook yesterday confirmed new arrangements were being made by his group.
Mr Cook said there had been a setback to roadworks in the North after Blacktop went into receivership.
"It is a complex situation but we expect to have a firm idea on what to do within the next two weeks," he said.
"We have been moving along fine and in discussions with the company.
"There will be a new arrangement done and we will confirm that soon."
Mr Cook said it was almost certain Blacktop would stop operating.
"With the new arrangements done, it is almost certain that Blacktop will not continue with roadworks in the North.
"We will continue working on our new arrangements and attend to roadworks in the North. We have had a setback after Blacktop went into receivership."
Last week, Mr Cook said the FRA was not liable for debts Blacktop owed local companies.
City Security Services earlier told this newspaper Blacktop owed them about $55,000 for security work provided.
