Bus stand upgrade

Mere Naleba
Monday, May 12, 2014

FIVE days after the lives of a 46-year-old woman and her three-year-old daughter ended in a freak road accident at the Suva bus stand, members of the traveling public who frequently use the bus stand will soon see pedestrian walkways in all three bus bays.

Suva City Council Acting CEO Bijay Chand yesterday confirmed that the council worked round the clock to ensure that the pedestrian walkways that would include railings are erected by this morning.

"They started work last night (Saturday) and they will continue to work right up until tomorrow morning," Mr Chand said.

Mr Chand said top priority was to construct the walkways and railings as these would safeguard pedestrians at the bus station.

"There are other expansion plans which include extending the bus station area to the Ministry of Primary Industries car park," he said.

He said this expansion would include the parking space between buses at their bus bays.

Seruwaia Rokoseru and her daughter Paulini Tubuna were killed when they were crushed between two buses last week.
