$4m contract

THE Fiji Roads Authority has awarded $4million to Kashmir Contractors to carry out refurbishment works along the Wainunu and Wailevu West Coast road.

FRA chief executive Neil Cook said a combination of drainage and pavement works were progressing along the road.

Mr Cook said the maintenance works would ensure water was kept off the road during heavy rain.

"We aim to produce a road that is resilient to rain, staying in a reasonable condition most of the times without affecting transportation for communities on this portion of the road," he said.

"These conditions are also subject to road users such as the timber industry playing by the rules to ensure that we have a good road.

"FRA's role is to ensure that the road pavement and the road environment are up to standard."

Mr Cook said the Wailevu West Coast and the Kubulau Rd looked good at the moment.

"There are a number of projects happening along that road apart from the major road maintenance project.

"We are building pavements on specific sections to keep the roads going and there are sections that are still fragile.

"Comparing the condition of the roads to my last trip 18 months ago, I can say that the road condition has improved a lot."
