The Bau Tikina Access Road is closed to all heavy vehicles including buses.

Fiji Roads Authority chief executive officer John Hutchinson confirming this.

He said the buses would continue to use the existing setup at Kasavu, on Kings Road, disembarking passengers who will need to board a second bus on the other side.

“This decision ensures that the FRA is preventing any accident or incident that may put the lives of the travelling public in danger.

“This will also contribute towards easing the flow of traffic and ensuring traffic safety,” Mr Hutchinson said.

He said the Bau Tikina Access Road is an emergency by-pass route that was opened up to provide alternative access on the network as a result of the slip at Kasavu closing Kings Road.

“The Bau Tikina Access Road remains open to vehicles up to a maximum weight restriction of 18 tonnes, excluding buses carrying public passengers.”

Mr Hutchinson has advised motorists to expect delays and inconvenience and has thanked the public for their patience.
