Thousands of people are now benefitting from the newly-upgraded Daniva Road in Valelevu, Nasinu.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) gen­eral manager Central Aram Goes said the upgrade would help reduce congestion by providing a much safer and improved access to the Valelevu Health Centre, LTA Head Office, factories, warehouses, su­permarkets and the Nasinu Town Council.

The two-kilometre Daniva Road links to Nayavumata Road, Navei­wakau Road and Nasinu Road.

“Works included construction of new footpath, kerb and channel, dish channels, full reconstruction of the road pavement, new park­ing bays, and bus bay all resurfaced with a more durable, smooth as­phalt layer.”

He said the construction of the new parking bay from the health centre to the Police Post will also ensure proper parking access which will reduce congestion at the intersection.

“The newly-upgraded road will help manage the increased traffic volume in Nasinu and also cater for the rise in active pedestrian travel with improved footpath and new bus bay allowing the smooth flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.”

Beyond the asphalt surface sec­tion of the road the remainder of Daniva Road will have a full width layer of chip seal applied over the recently completed pavement re­pairs carried out there.

This reseal work is planned for early this month.

“The FRA is working closely with the Nasinu Town Council to ad­dress localised areas of road deteri­oration caused by surface flooding in the recent heavy rains, resulting from blocked drains to ensure this road is ready for the planned reseal­ing.”

Mr Goes thanked road users for their patience and co-operation during these important works.
