Fulton Hogan Hiways is intensifying its pothole schedule for the Central and Eastern divisions following the heavy downpour last week.

Working under the Fiji Roads Authority maintenance programme, Fulton Hogan Hiways Suva North area manager, Asheesh Chand, said pothole crews were doing their best to repair fresh potholes that had appeared as a result of the rainy spell.

“The crews are patching the main highway on the Queens Road, Kings Road, Ratu Dovi Road, Fletcher Road, McGregor Road, Rewa Street and arterial roads. To beat traffic, crews are out by 5am to repair the busier streets,” Mr Chand said.

Mr Chand is advising drivers to adhere to the safety signs and speed limits especially on busy sections. FHH inspectors are also out on the roads reporting on new pothole sites.

Weather permitting, work will continue into the next week.
