THE Fiji Roads Authority is banking on new equipment expected to arrive in the country soon to assist them with clearing overgrown bushes along the roadsides in the country.

Responding to concerns raised by some motorists of Namoli in Labasa on the issue of overgrown bushes, FRA CEO Neil Cook yesterday said they were aware of the situation.

"We are expecting the new equipment from overseas in the next few weeks to help us with the clearing of vegetation along the roadsides," he said.

"Clearing of overgrown bushes is something we engage ourselves in apart from just doing road works," he said.
