ALERT-TC Winston Road Closures
Roads Closed

The following is a summary of main roads and their status.

Road Location Status
Queens Road From Mt Saint Mary School to Namotomoto Village Closed due to fallen trees
Kings Road Nabulini to Yaqara Closed due to fallen trees
Kings Road Near Kasavu Village Open to light vehicles only due to fallen power lines and trees
Kings Road Drasa Flat Closed due to fallen power lines and trees
Queens Road (Lautoka) Lautoka main street Closed due to fallen trees
Princes Rd Dilkusha Rd One lane only

Fallen trees have closed roads throughout all divisions and isolated flooding is occurring.

FRA’s contractors are currently clearing all main roads and emergency service access roads then will be concentrating on feeder roads to ensure access is restored. Due to the extent of debris on roads combined with electrical wires it is very slow to make progress through some sites. This combined with the significant amount of traffic and pedestrians in Suva and Lautoka who are breaking curfew are restricting emergency services in clearing roads. FRA request increased police pressure to enforce curfew to keep public safe and so that recovery is not impeded.
