Leave pegs alone, says engineer

PLEASE stop interfering with road construction survey pegs along road upgrading works in Suva and Nadi.

This is the appeal from the Fiji Roads Authority following cases of survey pegs being removed from their locations.

According to FRA program engineer Zaina Khan the survey pegs were used to mark road alignments and to warn of underground cables and utilities.

"Their removal not only disrupts and delay construction plans, but also risk the safety of workers and members of the public," she said.

Ms Khan also appealed to road users to slow down when driving through any of these work sites.

She said construction work and planning for the associated utility relocation works were steadily progressing on the road upgrading works in Suva along Kings Rd, between Makoi Rd and Omkar Rd.

This is a small part of the FRA's $200million road upgrade program in Nadi and Suva.

FRA said this would help increase the capacity and safety of major routes and improve connectivity for both local road users and tourists between Fiji's international airports and the adjacent towns.
