FIJI roads have been labelled by Civiltrain as "terrible".
And the Fulton Hogan Hiways Joint Venture (FHHJV) in collaboration with Civiltrain, a private registered training organisation, will be conducting a six-day workshop in Suva, Nadi and Savusavu for FHHJV employees and sub-contractors.
Civiltrain director Stuart Moulding said Fiji's roads were terrible because workers had no proper and formal training.
"Fiji roads are absolutely terrible because the people who are designing the roads are not doing it right," Mr Moulding said, adding that road construction was a different art.
"I want to show them how important their work is — and the whole reason is to make Fiji roads better," he said.
According to Mr Moulding, poor road design leads to bumpy roads, and that road-building was a detailed process.
"To build a good road that lasts 20 years, we need good tools and good people because what I'm seeing in Fiji are roads that only last for two and three years."
He said employers and sub-contractors of FHHJV would also be taught bottom principles of road construction during the workshop.
"I would like to come over again maybe later in the year and actually talk to the people that are designing the roads and show them where they are wrong."
The training program consists of both theory and practical sessions.
