Major roadwork’s on Ratu Dovi Road has begun.
Works begin daily from 7.30pm to 5.30am from Laqere intersection up to the Reba Circle intersection, Ratu Dovi Road.
During day time, works will begin after 9am and finish at 4pm.
Ratu Dovi 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, we will be closing the worst affected sections of Ratu Dovi Road to single lane to carry out structural pavement repairs and resurfacing works.
We will be removing 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.
This treatment is similar to that which was recently carried out along Princes Road over the past few weeks.
The greater part of the pavement repair works will be carried out at night, restricting the road to single lane traffic under Stop/Go Traffic Control.
During the day the 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.
Members of the public are requested to make their travel plans with these works in mind, avoiding this route if possible.
Motorists are 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 Ratu Dovi Road are expected to be completed by Monday 17 June 2019, weather permitting.
Other roads planned for similar Accelerated Sealed Repairs in June include Princes Road (Tamavua Village) and Queens Road (Suvavou).
