ROAD developments for four schools on Ovalau have been identified by the Fiji Roads Authority.

Authority chief executive officer Jonathan Moore confirmed there were plans to seal the roads at the identified schools.

"The following schools under the Village Frontage and School Frontage Program includes Tokou Village and Loreto College frontage, Nasinu Village and Early Childhood Centre, Draiba Government and Heritage Site frontage and St John's College including girls hostel and teachers quarters," he said.

However, Mr Moore said his team would also need to build good sea walls to protect the roads.

For Cawaci, the construction of the sea wall had been completed.

"Firstly, we will need sea walls to protect the road," Mr Moore said.

"Without a good solid protection by the wall, the road will fail and wash away during the next cyclone or storm.

"FRA is pleased to inform that we have reconstructed the sea wall beside St John's College in 2017. This work is fully complete."
