Fulton Hogan Hiways has completed roadwork that has helped smooth the way for motorists travelling off the Kings Road onto Ratu Dovi Road, an alternate route into the city.

Construction manager Phil Tombs said the intersection near the Laqere Bridge had been in very poor condition for a number of years. He said the stabilising crew had carried out a double lift of cement stabilising over the large section of the failed pavement.

“The uneven surface of the intersection made it unsafe for road users so we

needed to enhance its strength and resistance to damage caused by traffic and weather. We have strengthened it with a robust layer of asphalt laid over to top off the double lift stabilised pavement,” Mr Tombs said.

He urged motorists to slow down and drive safely through road maintenance sites as, “the safety of our work crews and the public is our Number One priority.”

Fulton Hogan Hiways continues its maintenance and renewals work across the central, eastern and northern divisions working closely with the Fiji Roads Authority.
