Recent road reconstruction on target sections of the Queens Road has seen the continuation of the Fiji Road Authority’s (FRA) commitment to improved driving conditions for motorists.
FRA General Manager Delivery – Central Division Aram Goes says the journey from Nadi to Suva is improving with the completion of the Queens Road, Talenaua Village reconstruction improving economic productivity and promoting more reliable journey times for the traveling public and businesses alike.
He said these improvement works have resulted in increased travel speeds necessitating the need for new road humps, along with a 60km/h speed limit through the Village, for community safety.
“The installation of additional road Humps on the Nadi-Suva highway is not the FRA’s preferred treatment for speed management. Road Humps disrupt the otherwise improved journey travel time and can affect emergency service response times, however public safety continues to be the FRA’s paramount consideration. It is unfortunate that this action is necessary as the result of the behavior of a small number of ill-disciplined drivers.”
He said the FRA continues to focus on critical sections of the Queens Road highway with upcoming projects planned for completion, including Matanivusi Hill, the Navua Hospital area and Nabukavusi along with remedial works through Wainadoi.
“The FRA wishes to acknowledge the patience shown by motorists affected by its nationwide program of road upgrades and apologises for any inconvenience caused.”
“We seek the public’s support and understanding of the disruptions necessary to enable these essential works, that we are confident will improve conditions by providing a safer journey and improve economy of all Fijians,” Mr Goes said.
