THE reconstruction of seven roads under the Suva Arterial Road Upgrading Project (SARUP 1) has been completed.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) confirmed this in a statement issued earlier today stating that the contract was set up to improve the main arterial roads.

“The new and improved roads have an improved capacity which allows a balanced traffic-flow particularly during peak hours,” the statement said.

The contractor for the road reconstructions was the China Railway Fifth Group.

· Kings Road – Mead Road roundabout to Kinoya/ Khalsa traffic lights
