Roads Projects Complete By The End Of  The Year

The Fiji Roads Authority has confirmed that the road projects in the Suva-Nausori corridor and Nabuawalu to Dreketi will be completed by the end of this year.

Capital Works Manager; Ian Hunter said though the progress on Wainibokasi Road project and the four-lane through Nasinu is slow, the authority is doing all it can to get the roads done on time.

“In Vanua Levu, the Buca Bay project has been slower than expected, but the Nabouwalu to Dreketi project is ahead of programme and all these projects should be completed by the end of 2015,” he said.

The authority held it’s first technical workshop attracting more than 20 engineers from all over the country.

Mr Hunt said the aim of the workshop was to ensure that the engineers designing and building pavement rehabilitations and road resealing were aware of the latest developments.

He said: “We have run workshops on tendering for local consultants and contractors in the past, but this is the first technical workshop and we will do so again.

“Road resealing and rehabilitation are key to returning Fiji’s road network to an acceptable condition. It is important that the consulting and contracting industry in Fiji is aware of the latest materials and methods.”

Since 2012, there have been 36 contractors listed to work with the authority.

They include major New Zealand Roadworkers companies Fulton Hogan Hiways and Higgins
