FRA identifies critical safety areas

AT least two areas in Lautoka have been identified by the Fiji Roads Authority to be critical in terms of road safety.

This was the comment made by Lautoka City Council CEO Jone Nakauvadra at the Land Transport Authority open day in Lautoka City on Saturday.

Mr Nakauvadra said road safety was something that needed to be adopted by Lautoka citizens if road fatalities were to decrease.

"These two areas are near Saweni and Lovu," he said.

He said Lautoka citizens needed to start working on implementing road safety measures so more lives could be saved.

According to Mr Nakauvadra, events such as the LTA open day gave a chance for members of the public to clear misconceptions about the authority and allowing people to understand their role in road safety measures.

"It also offers the LTA more room for improvement. There are considerable amount of misconceptions about LTA and some people go as far as calling them 'money-making machines'.

"These are the challenges that keep the authority going and striving for excellence and perfection. Today's open day will be an eye-opener for many of us."
