Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) has installed temporary road humps in front of Vivras Plaza, Laucala Beach Estate outside Suva to address speeding concerns.

Acting chief executive officer Robert Sen said this followed the recent high accident recorded in the area.

“We have installed advisory signs and new road humps which will reduce traffic speeds on the road, however, this is not the instant cure for all traffic issues,” Mr Sen said.

He said the installation of infrastructure such as speed humps was a last resort when all other safety measures fails and compromises the safety of general public.

“Alternatively, we need to educate the public, especially motorists about poor driver behavior, we need to create more awareness about road safety,” he said.

Mr Sen said they were working closely with the enforcement agencies; the Fiji Police Force and the Land Transport Authority (LTA) to address the number of speeding concerns.

“We will have these temporary road humps placed until the LTA installs speed cameras in the area.”

“The FRA wishes to advise members of the public especially motorists to please take heed of the advisory signs, be cautious and drive within the speed limits.”
