North roads worst hit

Avinesh Gopal

ROADS in the Northern Division are the worst affected following the bad weather experienced for the past three days.

The Fiji Roads Authority said yesterday afternoon that the Nabouwalu Rd and the Wailevu West Coast Rd were closed because bridges were under water.

But the authority said traffic going to and from Nabouwalu for ferry services would not be affected by the closure.

In Tailevu, four bridges and six roads were closed to all traffic yesterday while the Dawakoto Rd in Rewa was closed to light vehicles.

Bridges were also closed at various places in Taveuni, Savusavu and Nabouwalu.

Some roads in Ba, Rakiraki, Lautoka, Sigatoka, Nadi and Tavua were either closed to all traffic or open for light or four-wheel-drive vehicles only.

The FRA is waiting for the water level to recede at some places while surveys would be carried out at other places.

It has requested drivers to take extreme caution when travelling in heavy rain and to avoid going through flood- waters.
