Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) would like to advise members of the public that there will be temporary lane restrictions along Queens Road in Martintar tomorrow (16/4) from midday to midnight.

The traffic restrictions is required to allow Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) to carry out some vital emergency repairs to a five metre section of storm water sewer pipe that collapsed last week opposite Mount St Marys School.

FRA programme manager for the Nadi and Suva Road Upgrading Project (NASRUP) Zaina Khan said Queens Road will remain open at all times but it will be reduced down to a single lane.

“The single lane will be for traffic travelling towards Nadi Town alongside Cawa Road and traffic travelling towards Nadi Airport and Lautoka will be diverted through Cawa Road.”

She said there would be a no parking restriction on Cawa Road from midday to 6pm to maintain two way traffic flow.

“The relocation, repair and upgrade of critical infrastructure assets in the road corridor is an area in which FRA and its contractors work closely with utility service providers.”

Ms Khan said these emergency repairs were going to be carried out by WAF in co-ordination with the contractor, Higgins.

“The lane restrictions are in place to allow sufficient working area and protect both the WAF and Higgins teams who will be working on a very tight schedule to complete their works by midnight.”

She said these emergency repairs started last Saturday to allow extra time on Sunday for any poor weather conditions or unforeseen technical issues.

“As soon as WAF have completes their repairs Higgins will reinstate the affected part of Queens Road so that normal traffic flows can resume as soon as possible.”
