Road concern

The Wailoku Rd connecting the lower Wailoku valley to the main Princess Rd in Tamavua has been a concern for some residents.

Fr Kevin Barr, a prominent area leader, said there was a need to improve the edges of the tar-sealed road that was cracked and dangerous for road users.

Onoria Vakaloloma has been residing in the area since birth and said when people used the road, they needed to feel safe.

"The road needs to be improved in order to change the mind-set of people coming to the area," Ms Vakaloloma said.

Fiji Roads Authority CEO Neil Cook said Wailoku Rd, being part of the FRA development plans, would be considered equal with other roads in Fiji.

"Improvements are not only focused on the road pavement itself, we also work to improve facilities for pedestrians and traffic services like streetlights and warning signs," Mr Cook said.
