Long term solution

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

THE Fiji Roads Authority is working on building a safe, long-term solution for the Delailasakau Rd and the Kings Rd.

Delailasakau Rd was affected by a tropical depression earlier this year, cutting off access to the Sawani to Lomaivuna road.

"Delailasakau Rd leading into the Namosi highlands was another area that received extensive damage. Some 139 sites in this area alone have been identified as in need of some form of repair, including under slips and culvert washouts, varying in degree from minor to extreme," CEO Neil Cook said in their recent newsletter.

The Naiborebore slip completely cut off the Kings Rd earlier this year, he said, but within 48 hours, one-way traffic access was restored, with two lanes now fully restored.

He said progress was being made every day in the ongoing task of improving road conditions.

He said FRA was in its second year of operation as a stand-alone entity and was responsible for 11,000 kilometres of roads, more than 1000 bridges and 45 jetties.
