Road concerns

Salaseini Moceiwai And Luke Rawalai
Tuesday, March 04, 2014

ONE of the Northern Division's leading bus operators is concerned about the deteriorating road conditions in parts of Vanua Levu.

Parmod Enterprises Limited managing director Parmod Chand said the roads were impassable and inaccessible.

"Our company provides bus services on the roads in Vanuavou, Wainikoro, Dogotuki, Malau, Vunivutu, Kelikoso and Seaqaqa, to name a few, and all these roads have become impassable and unreachable," he claimed.

"Our bus trips often get disrupted and delayed and this causes a lot of anxiety to schoolchildren, the working community and the travelling public.

"We have noted that periodic and routine maintenance has not been undertaken on many of the roads."

Mr Chand said they had lodged their complaints with the authorities.

In response, Fiji Roads Authority CEO Neil Cook said all road contractors were working on the roads.

However, he said the road conditions were expected to deteriorate because of the adverse weather conditions being experienced.

Mr Cook advised motorists to exercise extreme caution because of the slippery road conditions.
