The Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) has installed 59 streetlights, replacing old and failing lamps in Levuka, to improve street safety.

FRA general manager for Network Operations and Maintenance Aram Goes says these streetlights will increase safety in neighbourhoods and reduce car and pedestrian accidents.

“We are using the LED lights as it consumes less energy whilst producing brighter, whiter lights, improving the visual consistency across the network,” Mr Goes said.

He said the FRA was progressively phasing out the inefficient yellow coloured lamps and the non-environmentally friendly Mercury Vapour lamps through its reactive maintenance and renewals works.

“While delays in attending to more remote towns such as Levuka and other smaller municipalities across the Fiji Islands is inevitable, the quality of the streetlight fittings and wiring workmanship has improved significantly over the past three-and-a-half years.”

He said the new and improved LED streetlights was part of the annual programme for streetlight maintenance and renewal works carried out by the FRA contractors.
