Seven Roads Remain Closed After Floods
Road Closed

Seven roads around the country remain closed and are impassable as a result of Tropical Depression 04F.

Three are located in the Central division with two in the north.

The roads in the Central Division are Nasiriti Road with a culvert undermined, Wailoa Road past Laselevu Village with multiple slips and Nabukavesi Road with a part of the road dropping out.

The crossing approach has been washed out at Qeleimumu Road in the Northern Division and there were two major slips on the Rabi Coastal Road.

The Western Division has slips and washed out approaches at the Lawaki Nasau Road, while the Eastern Division has a land slip for the Gau circular Road from Navukailagi to Qarani.

An alternative access route is being constructed connecting Bau Tikina Road off the Kings Road to Ratu Mara Road in Raralevu following a large slip at Kasavu/Baulevu Road Junction after TD04F.

The Fiji Roads Authority has set deadlines to ensure that repair works are completed.
