Malau Road Gets A Facelift

The road has been in its worst state for many years

With the completion of repairs and sealing works on Malau Road, outside Labasa, road conditions have dramatically improved.

Malau Road provides access into Labasa for villagers on nearby Mali and Vorovoro islands and is an important link in Vanua Levu’s economy, being the only road that leads to Fiji Forest Industries, one of the main timber millers on Vanua Levu.

It also leads to Malau port, Labasa’s only port, which hosts the Fiji Sugar Corporation’s raw sugar export terminal for its Labasa Sugar Mill as well as the Fiji Gas terminal.

Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) Stabilising and Construction crew northern supervisor, George Hughes, said his team, working under contract with the Fiji Roads Authority, on three sites on Malau Road totalling about 2.8 kilometres, have all been completed.

“That road has been in its worst state for so many years.  Trucks and big heavy vehicles use it daily and the road conditions have gone from bad to worse. With final sealing, those who regularly use that road have seen a big change and are very happy,” Mr Hughes.

Big logging trucks, oil tankers and trucks carrying sugar and molasses use the road on a daily basis.
