A portion of the Sigatoka Valley Road approximately 75km from Sigatoka will be closed until further notice.
This is due to the washing away of a large culvert caused by the continuous heavy rain faced in the Western Division.
High water levels are present throughout the Western Division and heavy rain forecasts over the next few days are likely to cause further damage.
The Fiji Roads Authority is therefore pleading to all road users to avoid flooded crossings and to take care on wet roads during this time.
A further update will be issued as information is gathered regarding this developing situation.
