Maintenance works please commuters

VILLAGERS living along the Wainunu to Kubulau road in the North have applauded road maintenance work carried out by Fiji Roads Authority.

The regular maintenance has resulted in excellent road surface condition allowing easy and enjoyable travel along the once rough terrain.

Commuters interviewed by this newspaper shared how enjoyable it was to travel on this road now compared with past years.

Naviavia Village headman Sade Marika said farmers were benefiting from this because they were able to sell their products every week.

In the past, he said, buyers would visit the area only when the road condition was good.

Mr Marika added that following maintenance work, buyers of dalo and copra were able to travel to the villages to do business.

"We are so blessed and although the road is gravelled, the condition is good for us so we want to thank government and FRA for the good work," he said.

"Now that buyers of dalo and yaqona are coming in, farmers are getting good money and they support their families well."

Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea said the roadworks had improved.

"At least it is better than before where the travelling public were mostly affected along this road. We have seen a difference today as busses hardly get stuck and cars too," he said.

"Now we see road contractors working and it is a big help to people living along this road because they can now earn money from selling dalo and yaqona."

The roadworks also included the digging of drains and clearing of bushes along the roadside.
