Princes Road roadworks begins tonight
17 May, 2019, 6:09 pm
MAJOR roadwork’s on Princes Road will begin from 7.30pm tonight.
Fiji Roads Authority has confirmed that works will begin daily from 7.30pm to 5.30am from Tamavua Hill side up to the College of Medicine Nursing and Health Sciences, Princes Road.
FRA said Princes Road has badly failed pavements which required extensive full-width repairs as a method of treatment. To reduce traffic congestion impacts the majority of these works will be carried out at night.
During the carriageway repairs, FRA will be closing the worst affected sections of Princes Road to single lane to carry out structural pavement repairs and resurfacing works.
FRA will remove the badly deformed surface which has deteriorated due to their age and the high volume of traffic.
These works are part of the Accelerated Sealed Repairs programme which will mitigate the current road conditions in these worst affected areas.
FRA is requesting members of the public to make their travel plans with these works in mind, avoiding this route if possible.
Motorists have been 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.
These works on Princes Road are expected to be completed by Tuesday 28 May 2019, weather permitting.
FRA added that other roads planned for similar Accelerated Sealed Repairs in June include Grantham Road, Ratu Dovi Road, Nokonoko Road and Queens Road (Suvavou).
