WORK on the first section of the Nadi-Suva road upgrade project is expected to begin soon.

The Fiji Roads Authority said the work would significantly widen roads between the Nadi and Nausori International airports and tourist destinations.

"China Railway Fifth Group is in the process of establishing themselves in the preparation for the renewal work to be completed in Nadi from Queens Rd-Denarau roundabout to Votualevu roundabout and the construction of a new road from Wailoaloa Rd to the Narewa-Denarau Rd," said FRA capital projects manager Ian Hunter.

"In Suva, the same company will begin the widening work on the Wainibokasi Road, from the Wainibokasi roundabout to Nausori Airport under a separate contract."

Mr Hunter said all the work completed under these two contracts is worth $45million.

He added contracts would soon be awarded to contractors for sections of the projects in Suva. This will include Kings Rd from Caqiri Rd, Valelevu to Pilling Rd, Laqere Bridge and Kings Rd from Makoi Rd to Omkar Rd.
