Speeding caution

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, August 29, 2014

SPEEDING has been cited as one of the major contributors of thick dust clouds that hover along the upgraded Dreketi-Nabouwalu highway on Vanua Levu.

And with the current dry spell, the China Railway First Group (CRFG) has yet again reiterated the need for motorists to drive within the speed limit of 50km per hour on the highway.

CRFG spokesman Donald Singh said they were aware of the situation.

"The problem was there well before we even started road works in the area. However, as part of our contract, we have continued to spray the road with water on a regular basis," he said.

"All the three sections are fully aware of this problem and they do their visual observations before spraying. One issue we have noticed is speeding and this is a major cause of thick dust.

"We are doing our part very well and we are also appealing to members of the public to report any speeding vehicle along the road to the authorities responsible."
