The Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) has advised that roadworks between the Laqere main road and Ma­koi, Nasinu, needs to be carried out only after peak hours.

The response from FRA comes in the wake of concerns raised by frustrated members of the public after road con­gestion caused by roadworks in the area.

FRA, in response, said the public had been advised to take heed of the roadworks which had started again along the Kings Road from Makoi traffic lights to the Laqere traffic lights (Suva-bound lanes).

FRA said these works were part of the ongoing SARUP 01 project, where the Nausori-bound lanes for the same sec­tion is near completion.

It added that the work would only be carried out after peak hours, especially during the night.

“During these works, traffic will be reduced to single lane each and the expected completion is the end of April weather permitting,” the FRA said.
