Serves more than 4000 residents who are sugarcane and root crop farmers

Work by Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) to widen and seal a 700-metre section on the Vunivutu Road in Labasa, is making a difference for school children, according to Vunivutu Primary School head teacher, Alipate Matadigo.

The work will be delivered through Fulton Hogan Hiways as part of the periodic maintenance programme to provide access to the Central, Northern and the Eastern divisions.

Vunivutu Road is located 30 kilometres from Labasa Town and serves more than 4000 residents who are sugarcane and root crop farmers.

“School children who often found it difficult to use the road when it rained now find it safe and secure.  The improved road has made all the difference to them,” Mr Matadigo said.

Work includes widening the road from three metres to six metres, as well as grading, compacting and gravelling with crushed rocks, followed by stabilising and sealing.
