People travelling along the Kings Road says the Kasavu Rd landslide has been a nightmare.

One bus driver who wished to remain anonymous, said: “This is really hard and for us, it is a very big job. We have to arrange two buses for one run because each one has to wait at each ends of the road.”

Passengers were equally frustrated. Many who spoke to Fiji Sun wished to remain anonymous as well.

“It so tiring for us travelling to the West because we have to offload our luggage and stuff and then carry it on the other side again, it’s irritating,” one bus passenger said.

“Those of us who have babies, now they are sleeping and we have to carry them to the other side in the hot sun. What if it rains? It’s very difficult.

“It’s so hard, but we cannot help it because nature calls. We hope that this road will be fixed as soon as possible.”

According to Fiji Roads Authority general manager network operations and maintenance, Aram Goes, the road repairs on the slip will take approximately three to six months.

The new alternative Bau Tikina Rd bypass route will be open tomorrow at 7am.
