Traffic diversion

Salaseini Moceiwai

MOTORISTS and market vendors have raised their concerns over the new traffic diversion at the Labasa Bus Stand during peak hours.

Police and LTA this week introduced a new re-routing system where motorists coming from Vulovi Rd will either be diverted to the Labasa Market Rd or the ANZ Ave instead of driving through the main street.

Those driving from Naseakula Rd, however, will follow the normal routine. Vendor Anare Kelo said motorists have been queuing up at the market and creating a lot of traffic in the area.

In response, police commander northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau said this was just a trial re-routing system aimed at easing traffic congestion.
