FRA reveals four-lane road plans from bridge to Lami Town

THE Fiji Roads Authority is looking at the possibility of constructing a four-lane road from Tamavua-i-wai bridge towards Lami Town, says its chief financial officer Robert Sen.

Mr Sen said this was to address the increasing number of vehicles and traffic congestions.

"The Suva Arterial Road Upgrading Project (SARUP) funded by the ADB is rehabilitating and putting seal into the existing Kings Rd and it will be part of the Tamavua-i-wai bridge to Lami Town.

"At this stage we are looking at upgrading the current two lane, or better to maximise at the same time and create a four-lane due to the number of vehicles and traffic congestions," he said.

"This project involves the regulating of the Queen Elizabeth Drive and the Kings Rd; three miles and four miles should be complete by May 2018."

He said the roundabout at Gaji Rd in Suva would be completed in a month's time.

"What we did was we closed the road during the holidays and the lanes are now open. We are looking at the weekends where we can fully complete it."

The FRA made submissions to the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee in Suva yesterday.
