Concerns over poor roads

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, April 01, 2014

THE appalling conditions along the Korotari-Vunimoli road in Labasa have affected the daily movement of residents in the area.

The conditions have made travelling difficult for residents.

Advisory councillor Prakash Sharma said the drains along the roadsides are easily blocked during the rainy season.

"Also, the roadside is overgrown with grass and it's obstructing motorists," he said.

"The road is really in a very bad state. It's really difficult for us here because taxidrivers are hesitant to travel on this road.

"We have notified the authorities responsible but we still haven't heard from them. We are pleading with them to assist us because it rains almost every day."

In response, Fiji Roads Authority CEO Neil Cook said roadworks have been planned for the area.
