THE Fiji Roads Authority is working to fix as many road issues as they can, saying they will not wait for the next weather event before starting repairs.
FRA maintenance manager Dale Nicholls said they were working on roads in both rural and urban areas.
"We certainly urge those in low-lying areas that are still under water not to attempt crossing until the water has receded and we can assess what damage has been done," he said.
"With the urban areas, obviously there are a significant amount of potholes that are out on the streets â€" we have all our pothole crews in action at the moment and they are attending to the worst areas." He said their teams were focusing on repairs on the Kings Rd.
"Our main concern is Kings Road and at the Babavoce hill which is 1.8km from Naiborebore Village going towards Korovou.
"That's a significant land slip, the road dropped over night about 800mm and sideways around 1.1metres.
"It's in an old historical slip site and geotech engineers are on site.
"The safety of our crews and staff is critical and that will be the dictating situation there.
"We are being proactive at this stage, we are not waiting for the next weather event.
"We're trying to do as much clean-up as we can right now," Mr Nicholls said.
