Sections of Ratu Dovi Road, from the Nokonoko Road roundabout to Kinoya Road, are currently being upgraded.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) contractors, Fulton Hogan Hiways, is carrying out mill and fill works on 500 metres of Ratu Dovi Road.

Mill and fill involves removing the old asphalt from the top layer of the road’s surface and filling it with newly designed and prepared asphalt, according to FHH surfacing manager, Greg Clark.

Mr Clark said the upgrade works on the Ratu Dovi site at Laucala Beach requires suitably dry weather conditions with the project carried out progressively.

The mill and fill operation on Ratu Dovi, Mr Clark added, “involves removing 56mm of the existing road and replacing it with new asphaltic concrete pavement for added reinforcement.”

“This process eliminates the existing potholes as well as giving a smoother ride to the travelling public.”

Prolonged wet periods have continued to impact Fiji’s roads in both urban and rural areas, with FHH crews responding to priority sites.

In addition to the works on Ratu Dovi Road, Mr Clark said work on pothole reduction sites on the Nepani and Nadawa road intersections are also progressing.
