REFURBISHMENT work along the Lomaloma trans-insular road between Labasa and Savusavu is progressing well, says Fiji Roads Authority CEO Neil Cook.
Mr Cook said the project was estimated to cost $3million.
"The road has been prone to erosion during heavy rain and the refurbishment work will ensure this is controlled," he said.
"A spring underneath the earth has been the main problem, making part of the road slide during rainy weather.
"The spring water will be piped away from its current path in order to save the piece of land on which the road sits."
Mr Cook has called on vehicle operators driving on the Savusavu via Labasa highway to be wary of refurbishment work being undertaken on the road.
"We currently have heavy earthworks being carried out on the piece of road and drivers should be wary of their speed limit when driving on the road.
"At times we would have to control vehicle access on the trans-insular road so that we can carry out operations but we ensure people that traffic will not be completely stopped during the course of the project.
"The refurbishment is part of FRA's effort to ensure that commuters in the North are safe."
