FRA Frustrated with Consequences of Careless Drivers Overspeeding
There has been two accidents in less than 24 hours along the four lane project at Nakasi on Kings Road.
Fiji Roads Authority Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Moore says it is extremely concerning that despite several warnings, some drivers continue to deliberately ignore safety advice, and speed through road works.
Moore said the law requires motorists to obey the reduced speed zones through roadworks.
He added that FRA has already suspended night works and if the issue of speeding continues, he said the Authority may end up closing sections of the road or installing physical speed controls.
Moore said they have asked the Land Transport Authority to consider putting traffic cameras once the work is complete on the entire length to help manage the issue of speeding.
He has reminded motorists, once again, to slow down to the posted speed limit through roadworks for their safety and that of the workers striving to improve our roads.
The Authority is working with the Fiji Police Force to address this issue through roadwork zones.
