Two lane traffic back to nornal

THE reinstatement work on the Nabukavesi culvert along the Queens Rd has been successful.

Last year, continuous heavy downpour caused the slip above a triple culvert crossing at Nabukavesi.

MWH Global technical delivery manager Don Clifford said he was pleased with the work carried out by his team, Fulton Hogan Hiways Joint Venture and the Fiji Roads Authority.

He said the work at Nabukavesi culvert required an intensive approach including specialist geotechnical engineering expertise; there was also all day traffic control with traffic reduced to one lane.

"The three new pipes installed beneath the road will ensure very good flow of stormwater in the river/stream and therefore will significantly reduce the risk of future slipping," Mr Clifford said.

"The traffic is now able to flow in two lanes again, and stop/go traffic control is no longer required."
