While families were enjoying Christmas and New Year in the comfort of their homes, staff members of Fulton Hogan Hiways spent hours keeping roads clear for travellers.

One of the areas of work the company is working on is the construction of the new Kings Road route that runs from Raralevu Road via Vuci Rd to Bau Tikina Road.

One of the road construction workers, Luke Taleca, yesterday told the Fiji Sun team how exciting his holidays had been.

“Spending my Christmas and New Year on the road was fun, as I was here working while my family was at home celebrating,” he said.

“I am not only doing this to get paid and support my family, but I am doing it for the public needs as well.

“People need to travel on good roads with no risk, so I am giving all my efforts along with our team to make sure that happens.”

The Ovalau native said he was happy doing his work during the holidays.

Another worker, 29-year-old Mohammed Imran Khan, said he was happy working among the team.

“I have been working in this company for two years and I’m enjoying my work,” he said.

Mr Khan said he was working hard to support his parents.

“I worked to make sure that my family enjoyed Christmas and New Year at home, not only that but also for the public to travel safely,” he said.

32-year-old construction worker Timoci Taqeinakoro said he married recently and he wished to spend his holidays with his wife, but instead he spent it with his other family-his work mates.

“I enjoy working and this is how I support my family and so my wife will understand,” he said.

“We are just making sure everyone who travels on the road is safe.”
