PROPER rehabilitation work on roads in Labasa is expected to begin next year.

At the moment, temporary roadworks that include resealing and covering of potholes are some of the ongoing activities undertaken by contractors and subcontractors.

Responding to questions raised by members of the Macuata Provincial Development Board meeting in Labasa early this week, MWH's consultant Ken Mason said full rehab works would start next year.

"You would have noticed that there were some roadworks done in Labasa last year and now we continue to do that," he said.

"For 2015, we are looking at full rehabilitation works and right now, it's more of temporary repairs to make the roads accessible and safe to the travelling public.

"We are also working on road maintenance not only in Labasa but other parts of Vanua Levu."

Meanwhile, acting divisional planning officer Northern Uraia Rainima has urged the FRA to work with them to address road issues accordingly.

"It's only proper we work closely together so road issues in the North are addressed properly.

FRA strategy and planning manager Christine Serreyn has also called on the public to directly lodge their complaints through their website or phone contacts.

"If it's a minor complaint such as a pothole, contact us so we can attend to it."
