Road works have started to improve the road surface on Waimanu Road.

This is ahead of the major Suva Arterial Road Upgrading Project 2 (SARUP 2) that will take place next year.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) chief executive officer John Hutchinson said the work taking place now would involve removing the badly deteriorated seal and applying a fresh coat of asphalt.

This will also involve an element of getting some much needed road shape in order to positively manage the road surface drainage on Waimanu Road.

“On this mini project, the FRA is also working with the Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) to install 3 new road (dead) laterals at a suitable depth in preparation for the WAF future work in Waimanu Road.”

“Our contractors will be working night shifts and the work will involve removing the top sealed layer of the heavily deteriorated sections on Waimanu Road and replacing it with a fresh layer of asphalt.”

The general public is advised to observe all temporary traffic controls and strictly abide by the safety measures that will be in place.

However, he reiterates that the work will take place at night and motorists are reminded to slow down through the area at all times day and night.

“Weather permitting and if the program proceeds as planned this work should be completed by the end of May.”
