A major upgrade is being carried out by Fiji Roads Authority on the Dreketi Feeder Road in Vanua Levu.
The work will be carried out by Fulton Hogan Hiways as part of the periodic road maintenance program to provide access in the Central, Eastern and the Northern Division.
Located off the Labasa/Nabouwalu Road, Dreketi Feeder Road is almost midway between Labasa and Savusavu, each town is about 60kilometres away in either direction.
The road serves the Government station, 2 Schools, 14 villages, 7 Settlements, and people traveling to Nabouwalu and Savusavu.
Mesake Tabuaciri said the road used to be narrow and dusty but now its safe and dust free.
The 350-metre road has been stabilized, compacted and will be sealed.
