Access roads to be repaired

THE Fiji Roads Authority will address conditions of access roads and farm roads after it deals with major roads around the country, says CEO Neil Cook.

Responding to concerns raised by members of the Bua Provincial Council regarding the condition of farms roads in the province, Mr Cook said those roads were one of the main reasons the FRA was set up.

He said the historic practice by past road makers were to go and cut roads instead of building them so they could be maintainable.

"This is a process that FRA is totally eliminating as it endeavours to make roads that will last," Mr Cook said.

"If we are going to do a road, whether it's a new road or an upgrade, we need to scope the work properly so that we know what we need to do for a particular community.

"One road does not have to look like the other one but all of them need to be built to satisfy the need of the people."

Mr Cook said the FRA now had more contractors working on arterial road connections around the country.
