Waterlogged roads upset residents

RESIDENTS living along the Naseakula Rd tramline in Labasa are concerned at the number of potholes on the road adjacent to the railway, saying they're unhygienic and a hazard.

Resident Kiran Autar said the potholes had affected transportation.

"Not only that, the rain water held by these potholes is a concern since the dengue fever outbreak is still raging and we're concerned the holes will become breeding places for mosquitoes," she said.

"It is not funny how big these potholes have become, and they're an eyesore.

"We have complained to the authorities but nothing has been done."

Attempts to get a comment from Fiji Roads Authority chief executive Neil Cook yesterday were futile.

However, speaking during a trip to Labasa on Friday, Mr Cook said their work on minor roads in the North was progressing.

"We would like people to contact our office and log their concerns with us personally," he said.
