The Fiji Roads Authority will be reverting to the lane and direction arrangement of Renwick Road that was in place before the recent change.

Over recent months the FRA has been working within the Suva City Centre to realign roads and redirect traffic.

The final phase of this work was the directional changes on Renwick Road, that was implemented earlier this week and has been closely monitored throughout its operation.

In a statement, FRA noted that right-of-way restrictions, parking and off-loading practices along Renwick Road have made the changes in Renwick Road less effective than expected.

We do not wish to perpetuate a solution that is not meeting expectations so with effect from 5am tomorrow we will be reverting to the lane and direction arrangement that was in place prior to the recent change.

As of yesterday, from Ellery Street, motorists were able to turn left onto Renwick, to exit onto Pratt Street.

The existing right turn movement out of Ellery Street onto Renwick Road will remain for the two lanes through to Waimanu Road.

As this was only a trial operation, the extent of work required to revert to the previous arrangement is minor and disruption will be minimal during the time the changes are taking place.

“We remain of the opinion that the centre of Suva is not efficiently operational from a transportation perspective and we will continue seek improvement through the Greater Suva Transportation Study that is scheduled to report on findings by mid – 2019.”
