THE Fiji Roads Authority will upgrade the existing two-lane road from the Nausori Airport entrance to the Wainibokasi roundabout in Nausori, according to Nadi and Suva road upgrade project program manager Zaina Khan.

She said their design consultants had worked on the Nadi and Suva road upgrade project for 18 months with construction work already in progress and tenders being prepared and evaluated.

"This key project will bring a boost to Fiji's economy by improving access from the international airports to the adjacent cities and nearby areas," she said.

"It will enable more economic development such as shops, houses and amenities along the highways.

"It will also significantly enhance the first experiences for tourists to Fiji."

Under the development plan, Kings Rd from Nakasi Rd to Davuilevu roundabout will have its existing two lanes upgraded to a four lane road; Caqiri Rd to Piling Rd and Makoi Rd to Omkar Rd will feature their existing three-lane road upgraded to four.

Ms Khan said tenders were being prepared for the road upgrade in the West on the Queens Rd from the Naisoso junction to Votualevu roundabout and Votualevu roundabout to Wailoaloa Rd — these two-lane roads would be upgraded to a four-lane road.
