THE Fiji Roads Authority has closed 10 roads in the Central and Eastern divisions because of flooding experienced due to the low pressure system affecting the country.

An Information Ministry statement yesterday said that parts of Delailasakau, Saliadrau, Naitonitoni, Nabukavesi, Wainadoi, Waiyanitu and Beqa roads were flooded.

Traffic management signs have been put in place to notify motorists at Wainadoi, Waiyanitu and Beqa roads.

Dawakoto and Buiduna roads in Rewa are also closed with parts of Savu Rd in Naqali.

Six bridges on Savu Rd are flooded.

"All travelling public are advised to take extreme caution and to avoid all flood waters. Fiji Roads Authority maintenance contractors are out inspecting and assessing infrastructure failures and reinstating closed roads," the statement said.

The public will be advised once water recedes from these areas.
