Major rehabilitation work on Ratu Kadavulevu Road is now completed.
Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) is working under the Fiji Roads Authority maintenance program to provide access to people in the Central, Northern and Eastern divisions.
Ratu Kadavulevu Road is 10km away from Nausori Town. It serves more than 1000 residents in farming settlements, villages, students attending district schools and also the island of Bau.
Fulton Hogan Hiways’ crew stablised the road surface with cement and sealed it after all construction was completed.
The Ratu Kadavulevu Road works included the removal of high shoulders, cleaning of drains and waterways, overlaying of aggregates, grading, shaping, stablising and surfacing of the road.
The improvements will make the road safer for all road users in this area. The drainage improvements and high shoulder removal have made it easier for cars and buses to pass safely.
Corporal Karalaini Vakacegu, the Nausori Police Station Officer, said she is very thankful and at the same time relieved, as the repair work has improved their response time to crime cases and also to emergencies.
“The condition of the road used to delay our work and sometimes caused inconvenience and I am thankful that the Bau Landing has been repaired and sealed but this has never been better,” she said.
