Harry and Meghan Fiji visit: Change in road closure time

The stretch of road from the Nausori Airport, along the Kings Rd towards Samabula and to the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva will be closed from 3.15pm today.

THE full road closure for the royal visit will be implemented from 3:15pm this afternoon and not 4:15pm as earlier announced.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said this is due to a change in time for the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the Nausori International airport at 3:30pm.

“Traffic officers will redirect traffic until the motorcade passes and will open up the roads immediately after.”

During this period, traffic within the route that the the royal entourage will be taking is restricted.

This will begin from the stretch of the road to the Nausori International Airport, through to Kings Rd, Samabula ending at Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva.

The following roads will be on rolling closure:

  • Wainibokasi Road
  • Kings Road (Nausori to Nabua)
  • Ratu Mara Road
  • Waimanu Road
  • Edinburgh Drive
  • Rodwell Road
  • Scott Street
  • Victoria Parade
