Residents fret over poor road

RESIDENTS living at Qila settlement, Taveuni, have raised concerns on the poor road in their area.

The settlement, on the northern part of the Garden Island, is home to about 500 people who are affected by the road condition.

Resident James Swamy claimed they raised their concern with the Fiji Roads Authority office in the North, but nothing had been done.

"It's exactly after a year now that we haven't seen any upgrade works done on this part of the road," he said.

Mr Swamy said about 100 students from their area used that part of the road.

"We need to get our roads done before any accident happens because the roads keep getting worse after every heavy downpour," he said.

Fiji Roads Authority general manager network operations Aram Goes said they were aware of the road condition at Qila settlement.

"Qila Rd is part of this month's program (January) for grading and compaction," he said.
