THE first contract for work on the Nadi and Suva roads upgrading project has been awarded to China Railway 5th.

Fiji Roads Authority program engineer Zaina Khan said the company had started work on the project.

"They have started to mobilise and are working in liaison with utility service providers like Water Authority, Fiji Electricity Authority and Telecom Fiji Limited," she said.

"They are working with utility service providers and co-ordination officers for utility relocation.

"They are working to divert those as quickly as possible before moving to the construction site."

Ms Khan said a tender was being prepared for upgrading the two-lane road leading from Nasoso to Wailoaloa to four lanes.

"So on road upgrades, we will be looking at enhanced road drainage, street lighting and footpaths."
