Residents of Imthurn, Seymour and O’Brian Road in Domain, Suva, can expect to travel “more comfortably” now that the road surface has been improved.

Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) has completed stabilisation works on the 53, 240 and 310 metre roads, respectively.

This work is carried out under a maintenance contract with the Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) to improve road access across the Central, Eastern and Northern divisions.

FHH construction manager Mark Burns: “These roads were previously in poor condition, with problems such as the unstable carriageway, pot holes across the surface and issues of poor drainage.”

To improve the road surface, the pavement has been stabilised with cement before shaping, compaction and eventually seal.

This provides a higher strength finish and will give a longer life to the road.

Additionally, there will be an improvement of the shoulders and drainage along these roads, clearing both side drains and pipes to ensure that water runs off and does not pond on the road surface.

Mr Burns said that his team had been mindful of the residents’ movements in and around the work sites and in keeping with FHH’s zero-harm policy, several safety measures were imposed on the site.

These included having a sound traffic management plan in place, traffic controllers to ensure that pedestrians and motorists travelling in the area were aware of the hazards and having spotters to assist and guide heavy machine operators.
