AS the adverse weather continues to affect the country, members of the public are advised to be aware of localised flooding.

The Fiji Roads Authority issued a statement today notifying members of the travelling public that several low lying roads and crossings, including the Veisari Slip on Queens Road, were being monitored.

“We are urging the public to please refrain from attempting to cross flooded roads, crossings and bridges and use alternative routes where possible,” the FRA stated.

“Also, motorists are advised to keep a safe following distance in order to prevent accidents on wet and slippery roads.”

The FRA said that it would continue to issue alerts and warnings as required.

Members of the public can call the FRA on toll free number 5720 should they have any queries.
