FRA works on crossings

THE Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) says there are hundreds of crossings in need of repairs around the country so it is prioritising the ones with the greatest need to be fixed before they fail completely.

In a statement, the authority said it had commenced work on crossings at Masi and Togolavusa, outside Nadi.

These two crossings are among 15 throughout the country that have entered construction phase.

FRA capital works manager Ian Hunter said the crossings should be completed before the rainy season in November.

"The list is very long and it is a matter of prioritising the crossings that have the greatest need, or that can be fixed relatively quickly and simply, before they fail completely," Mr Hunter said.

"Really, they are all a priority, giving Fijian people everywhere reliable access to the outside world is extremely important for so many reasons."

He noted there were locations where buses could not get past for periods of up to five years because of crossings being destroyed and cutting off safe access.

"For villages that are cut off when crossings are washed away, the most pressing problems are access to work, education and health care."
