Talks on possible relocation of bus stand

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, July 03, 2014

THE Fiji Roads Authority is working with the Labasa Town Council to improve the condition of the town's bus stand.

And if the situation continues to worsen, there are discussions on the possibility of relocating the bus stand to a spacious and safe location.

Officials from the two organisations met in the northern town early this week to table strategies for the proposed initiative.

FRA CEO Neil Cook yesterday said discussions were held on the long-term project.

"Discussions about the possibility of relocating the bus stand were among other issues deliberated at the meeting," he said.

"Right now, plans are in their initial stages where the two parties are holding consultations on the proposed project.

"At the moment, we are trying our best to improve the congestion issue and also ensure the safety of the travelling public."

Mr Cook said they were also undertaking pavement and other minor road upgrade works at the bus stand.

"We are assisting the council with road works there (bus stand) as we aim to improve its condition.

"We can say that the busy area is quite unsafe and that's why we are working to ensure the safety of the pedestrians as well as the motorists."
