MEMBERS of the public are walking away with road cones and signs.

And the Fiji Roads Authority is calling on the public to refrain from doing this.

Authority CEO Neil Cook said they have noticed that road cones and signs were being damaged, vandalised or removed from worksites.

He said the road cones and signs served a purpose for motorists and other road users.

"It is important to note that these signs and cones serve a purpose and that is to immediately inform approaching motorists and pedestrians to take precaution," Mr Cook said.

Mr Cook urged members of the public to report any sighting of people damaging road upgrade properties immediately.

"It costs to replace these items and the people involved need to realise that their actions could also have an impact on public safety. We urge the public to report anyone seen damaging public property immediately to the police."
