LTA opens its doors to the public

THE Land Transport Authority open day in Labasa on Saturday is expected to create an opportunity to reach out to people.

A statement from the authority welcomed public events that can connect closely and relate personally to the people regarding road safety.

The LTA will take full advantage to promote its road safety campaign and to conduct more road safety advocacy work in the North.

"The authority will also maintain its 'Stop! Think Road Safety' theme for the upcoming Labasa LTA Open Day," the statement read

"It will be the final open day for the authority in 2014 following the first one that was staged in Suva on May 24 and the second was held in Lautoka in June.

"Apart from promoting and exhibiting all its service, it will be also an opportunity to advocate road safety."

The statement also said LTA would use this time to promote its road safety awareness campaigns because it remained a critical agenda with the authority.

"It's an issue which we value and hold dear to us because it deals about life and death, the lives of people using the road, the lives of those travelling in public transports and the lives of drivers, passengers and pedestrians using the road."

Commissioner North Alipate Bolalevu will be the chief guest at the open day and members of the public are encouraged to visit the LTA booth to view some of the products and machines the LTA uses during its road operations.
