FIJI Roads Authority is attending to two roads in Sigatoka that were damaged as a result of the recent adverse weather and affected the movement of the 1000 people who live in the area.

CEO Neil Cook said a proposal was in the pipeline to divert Tilivalevu Rd which flooded every time there was heavy rain.

Yavulo Village headman Jone Ratubuli said the flooding was caused by an overspill of the nearby Qwali River.

The Water Authority pump station, Vodafone, FBC and CFL transmitter towers are also located along Tilivalevu Road.

On the matter of the damaged Nasau-Lawai bridge raised by Nadroga provincial administrator Peni Naqasenivanua, Mr Cook confirmed that FRA has begun repair works.

Mr Cook said FRA contractor Higgins would continue to maintain the road at Tilivalevu while they looked into a proposal to divert the road.
