THE LTA will erect safety billboards in Levuka and the Northern Division soon.

Authority spokesman Iliesa Sokia said these would advocate on the importance of road safety to the public.

"We are working with the Fiji Roads Authority in doing a road survey to find out the proper areas where billboards can be erected," Mr Sokia said.

"It's important for the public to know about road safety and this is the whole idea behind this move.

"We did surveying in the West last week and we have moved to the Old Capital and the North this week."

Mr Sokia hopes the billboards will send the proper message for people to adhere to simple road safety tips.

The billboards are expected to be erected next month.
