Road cracks

Friday, February 28, 2014

THE Fiji Roads Authority has closed a portion of the Kings Rd after rainfall on Wednesday night opened cracks in the road that became progressively worse yesterday.

The authority closed the Kings Rd — 1.8km from Naiborebore Village towards Korovou.

"The road has a severe crack that opened following overnight rain," the FRA said in a statement.

"Geotechnical engineers have assessed and closed this road until a diversion is complete."

Police director Traffic SSP Mahesh Mishra was on site monitoring the situation and said police would ensure the safety of the public travelling that road.

"The road engineers are on their way to assess the situation and they will fix it as soon as possible," SSP Mishra said.

"However, as we speak, the road is not slipping away."

SSP Mishra said the road posed a risk to heavy laden vehicles passing through.

"This situation is really beyond anybody's control but we are also very grateful that passing motorists called in this morning."

He said it was imperative that drivers exercise caution when travelling on roads to avoid accidents.
