The Fiji Roads Authority will assist homeowners dismantle parts of their property located on the road reserve earmarked for a new route to Denarau.

The route stretches from the Enamanu Rd along the Queens Rd and exits opposite Narewa Village, along the main Denarau Rd.

"We have already begun consulting with local communities as a number of households have built extensions and are encroaching the road reserve and we will assist with dismantling and moving these structures" said Zaina Khan, FRA's program engineer.

The route cuts through communities at Wailoaloa and Navakai, with construction contracted to the China Railway No.5 Engineering Group (CR5G).

In a recent statement, Ms Khan said their main challenge was relocating public utilities ahead of road construction works.

These are overhead telephone cables, underground electronic cables and water pipes.
