Roadworks to end by 2016

ROAD rehabilitation works along the Dreketi Nabouwalu highway may end in 2016, says Fiji Roads Authority's Neil Cook.

Speaking on a recent tour of the North, Mr Cook said work on the road had been affected by many factors, including the weather.

He said they wanted to produce a road network that would cope with the same factors delaying work on the highway.

"We are looking at developing a road network that will have an extended durable life of around a 100 years and it will take some time to produce such roads," he said.

"Our contractors working along the highway have been doing all the best they can to produce durable roads for Bua.

"Therefore, our focus is not so much on the completion of the project but to ensure the condition of the new road can withstand the conditions it will be exposed to once it is completed."
