Utility relocation

THE Fiji Roads Authority is working on shifting utility facilities within the Nadi four-way lane project area.

FRA chief executive officer Neil Cook said there was no set date on how long the process would take.

He said there was an enormous amount of work going on in the background that involved, in particular, a lot of utility services relocation.

"That includes shifting water pipes, electricity cables and so that is what is happening over there at the moment," Mr Cook said.

"We can expect to see the more visible major roadworks ramping up in the next one to two months.

"It's a bit hard to say exactly how long the shifting work is going to take because they need to shift enough so that work can start on the roadworks and then they shift some more after the work begins.

"So it's a progressive kind of work being done there."

The four-way lane project is divided into two sections. The first is from the Nasoso junction to the Votualevu roundabout while the second section is from the roundabout to Wailoaloa Rd.
