Police Beefs Up Security For Fiji’s First Super Rugby Match

The Fiji Police Force will be stepping up on security measures for the Investec Super Rugby match between the Gallgher Chiefs and the BNZ Crusaders this Friday.

An operation is currently underway to provide safety and security for all, and ensure visiting teams and their foreign supporters return safely to their home country as this is an event that was initiated by the Government.

We are therefore requesting members of the public to assist stakeholders ensure the visiting teams and everyone who will be gracing our shores in the coming week will be accorded the true Fijian hospitality so that all events are incident free.

In light of the fact that there are major events also occurring concurrently such as the Fiji Showcase, a number of traffic requirements will be implemented on Friday

1 st of July.

1) For those heading into the games venue along the Laucala Bay road and Fletcher road, only vehicles with permitted passes allocated by the Fiji Sports Council will be allowed to use the parking space in front of the ANZ Stadium. Those without the vehicle pass wishing to watch the match will not be able to park in this area and are being requested to find alternative parking space.

2) Those wishing to attend the Fiji Showcase and conduct shopping or their business in nearby areas will be allowed to proceed as usual.

3) From 9pm – 11pm the Laucala Bay Road going into Fletcher road, only one lane heading towards Vatuwaqa will be opened for traffic. This is to allow the smooth flow of traffic from the ANZ Stadium as the Fiji Showcase is also anticipated to end at the same time. Therefore those wishing to head into the Laucala area from Fletcher Road are requested to take alternative routes during this time.

Traffic officers will be coordinating traffic flow and members of the public should expect some disruption and we are asking for your patience and cooperation as we want to ensure minimal disruptions as possible. Your support in ensuring an incident free event will hopefully see Fiji hosting similar major sporting events in the future
