Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) is concerned with offloading off excavators on the road which is damaging the road infrastructure.
FRA Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Moore says excavators must be transported on trailers when moving from one location to another rather than driving them on the road.
“These heavy equipment vehicles are not only damaging our roads, but it is also costing taxpayers a lot of money during reconstruction,” Mr Moore.
He said they will be applying the maximum penalty to deter businesses from offloading heavy equipment vehicles on FRA roads.
“We wish to remind business owners that vehicles such as excavators, bulldozers is prohibited on the road. Please transport them in the legal way and when offloading such equipment from trailers the road surface must be protected.”
