THE Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) has made some design changes along selected streets in Suva.
These changes are expected to help ease the flow of traffic coming in and out of the Capital City.
Authority CEO Neil Cook confirmed some of these changes included the addition of flush medians along Victoria Parade to give way to vehicles accessing adjourning properties.
A flush median is a strip in the centre of the road that is marked with white diagonal lines within parallel lines.
It provides a place for vehicles that are turning right, or vehicles that have turned right, on to the road from a side road or driveway.
"Also with the traffic lights outside the Suva City Library, all vehicles travelling into the city from the Nasese end have to stop at the red light and give way to vehicles coming through MacArthur Street," Mr Cook said.
"There will also be changes to the position of the traffic lights and the layout of the road along Harris Road by the port which we will see in a few weeks' time as work progresses."
The recent road works from FRA include the sealing off of sections of Victoria Parade, Knollys St and Lami from the Waica Bridge (about 1300 metres) with asphalt.
Scott St from Gordon St intersection to the bridge at Village 6 has been milled (top layer has been removed) and work is ongoing at Harris Rd, Renown St and later followed by Rodwell Rd.
"Line markings have started on completed roads."
He maintains the public should always keep safe around FRA working crews and obey all instructions and signages in place.
The road works are expected to end next month.
