Option to improve authority's service

THE Fiji Roads Authority is in the process of divesting its mechanical testing laboratories in a bid to upgrade its service.

Chief executive officer Neil Cook said the process had started with an invitation for suitably, qualified and experienced road materials and mechanical testing laboratories owners to register their interest with the authority by May 26.

"This is the first phase of the divestment process," Mr Cook said.

The road material mechanical testing laboratories is owned by FRA which plans to eventually "obtain these services from the market by securing ongoing service from the successful tenderer/ purchaser for a period of at least three years with a reducing percentage of guaranteed work".

He said this was part of FRA's strategy to function as a corporate body solely responsible for the overall management of Fiji's roads, bridges and jetties.
