A radar device, used to monitor vehicle speeds, will soon be placed along the Nawaca Village road stretch to help increase road safety for children.

This was confirmed by the Divisional Police Commissioner Northern Senior Superintendent Shiri Singh during a talanoa session at the Ratu Epeli Ravoka Technical College in Bua yesterday.

The announcement came after concerned parents requested Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarana, for a hump to be placed on their road to help reduce speeding as they feared for the lives of their children.

Speaking on behalf of the parents Senitiki Raogo said: “We are requesting for a road hump, because this will cause vehicles to slow down when they come near our village.

“Our children use this road every morning and ever afternoon.

“We do need this to be installed so their lives are not at risk.”

Mr Bainimarama asked the Fiji Roads Authority representative, present, Rupeni Oli, to look into the issue.

Mr Oli replied that they could not install anymore road humps as it damaged the road.

He however suggested that speed limit notices be planted along the road and also more supervision from the Fiji Police Force.

SSP Singh then assured the people of Nawaca that they would help monitor speeding through a radar, which will be installed soon.

“We cannot however disclose the exact location where the radar will be placed,” SSP Singh said.
