ROADWORK on Suva’s Princes Road is progressing well.

According to the Fiji Roads Authority, works are expected to be completed by Tuesday, May 28, weather permitting.

FRA states that works begin daily from 7.30pm to 5.30am from Tamavua Hill side up to the College of Medicine Nursing and Health Sciences.

The greater part of the pavement repair works are being carried out at night, restricting the road to single lane traffic under Stop/Go Traffic Control.

During the day, FRA contractor will maintain two-way traffic during peak morning and afternoon traffic periods.

To reduce the risk of rain delays, surfacing works will be carried out from time-to-time in off-peak traffic hours and motorists are to expect delays.

FRA is requesting members of the public to make their travel plans with these works in mind, and to avoid this route if possible.

Motorists are also reminded to strictly adhere to the directions of the flagman and the site traffic control, to ensure the safety of other motorists and workmen alike.
