MiniBus Drivers Fear For The Fallen Bus Shelter

“This is still dangerous as a little bit of the bus shelter has yet to fall entirely to the ground and it looks like it can flip towards the road, which can do damage to anything or anyone around,” he said.

Minibus drivers operating the Suva- Nausori route are concerned about a fallen bus shelter at Struan St, Suva.

The Central and Eastern Minibus Association president Naresh Chand said the fallen structure posed a dangerous risk to pedestrians and vehicles.

Mr Chand said the bus shelter was in bad condition for months and eventually fell on the roadside on August 9.

He said the association had made various efforts to enlighten Suva City Council (SCC) about the condition of the bus shelter yet no action was taken.

“The condition of the bus shelter kept getting worse, especially during the past two months; it was shaking and actually seemed like it could fall at any moment.”

“This is still dangerous as a little bit of the bus shelter has yet to fall entirely to the ground and it looks like it can flip towards the road, which can do damage to anything or anyone around,” he said.

Questions sent to the SCC remained unanswered by the time that this edition had gone to press.
