Residents in Cunningham in the Central Division will soon see new footpaths being constructed as part of Fiji Roads Authority’s (FRA) Renewals Project.
FRA Chief Executive Officer John Hutchinson says that Rehoboth Infrastructure Limited has been awarded the contract to construct new footpaths with the sum of $1,320,261.61.
“Cunningham Road currently lacks footpath. The new footpaths will increase safety and reduce car and pedestrian accidents,” Mr Hutchinson said.
“The footpath will now line up the full length of the right-hand side on Cunningham Road from Kings Road to Princess Road, plus selected sections of new footpath on the left-hand side, a combined total length of 3500m.”
He said the scope of works includes new footpaths, associated kerb and channel, drainage, signage and pedestrian hand rails.
“Safety is paramount and the general public is strongly advised to stay alert and stay clear from the construction site.”
Mr Hutchinson said the FRA will ensure that all works carried out on site will be done with minimum impact upon the environment and residents.
“The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2017, weather permitting.”
