FIJIANS living in nine villages within the districts of Kiuva, Buretu and Nakelo can now travel with confidence and comfort following the completion of upgrading works on the five kilometre section of Kiuva Road in Nakelo, Tailevu.

The nine villages depend on this road for access.

A statement issued today by Pacific Reach Limited stated the work was delivered by Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) as part of the periodic road maintenance program to provide access to people in the Central, Northern and Eastern divisions.

“The work included pre-drainage work, pre-shaping of the sub-grade, placing of crushed aggregate and final shaping and compaction,” the statement said.

Muanaira Village headman Tevita Salasalavonu said he was grateful to Fulton Hogan Hiways for the road construction works because road access was one main issue his people faced in the past.

“Much attention was given to its drainage work so that water would run off the road surface to the drainage system alongside the road to avoid flooding,” Mr Salasalavonu said.
