The Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) is advising all travellers passing through Votualevu Roundabout in Nadi that its contractors have started intermittent night time work.

This will begin on Sunday (May 10) from 6pm to 6am Monday morning.

Motorists and pedestrians are requested to take heed of this public advisory and to accommodate more time for night travel over the next six to eight weeks because changing lane restrictions and traffic controllers will be in place.

Over this period, the contractor will intermittently operate on a 24-hour basis, in two shift patterns; day and night, on the Votualevu Roundabout until lane restrictions are lifted.

FRA says its officials and project teams are aware of the heightened congestion issues currently being experienced along its most active construction sites as pedestrians, vehicular traffic, utilities relocation and road construction all compete for space within the road corridor.

The best remedy for the project team is to open restricted sections as early as we can to reduce the overall disruption to the community wherever possible.

“Night time work is not suitable for all aspects of complex capital works projects. However, where we can accommodate night work, in the interests of the community and the project we will do so,” says FRA NASRUP Programme Manager Zaina Khan.

Motorists are warned to pay particular attention while travelling via the roundabout during the evenings and at night as the traffic management changes will be sometimes dramatic and dynamic.

“Similarly on another evening there may be no change to the traffic management as night time work may not take place,” he said.

Travellers to the area are asked to pay particular attention to the signs, the traffic controllers and traffic cones to guide them through what will intermittently be effectively a very active construction site during the night time over the next six to eight weeks until the roundabout lane restrictions are lifted.

At the same time traffic management will continue as normal during the day.
