Fiji Roads Authority Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Moore says now that the weather has improved, they will be working continuously to bring the road condition under control in the Central Division.
Deterioration in many areas following the prolonged period of heavy rainfall has resulted in inevitable potholes.
Moore says in many locations the deterioration is so progressed that they can no longer maintain the serviceable road through potholes repairs FRA will now have carry out sectional carriageway repairs.
However, FRA cannot carry out sectional carriageway repairs on the worst affected areas until there is a clear 4-lane route along Kings Road from Rewa Bridge to Nakasi, as this would result in even worse congestion and disruption that is currently being experienced.
Moore stressed that it is important the public understand that by working on individual roads sequentially the FRA is striving to minimize disruption throughout the city.
Several other locations around Suva have been severely damaged through the recent severe weather and we will continue to repair those affected areas.
The FRA will also be carrying out repairs on severely affected portions of Ratu Mara Road.
