Waimanu Road Gets Upgrade

Major road works are taking place on Waimanu Road in Suva and this work is carried out by Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH).

FHH is contracted to implement the Fiji Roads Authority’s (FRA) maintenance programme to improve road access across the Central, Northern and Eastern divisions.

Approximately 10,000 square metres of existing road, beginning from the Waimanu, Renwick, and Toorak roads intersection and ending at the intersection of Brown and Amy streets, will be milled out and replaced with new asphalt.

FHH surfacing manager Greg Clark said Waimanu Road had been patched extensively in the past, resulting in a rough surface and now in need of urgent repair.

“When the work is completed, motorists can expect a smoother, safer driving experience along Waimanu Road without having to dodge potholes,” Mr Clark said.

“As Waimanu Road is a high-volume traffic route providing access to the Suva Central Business District, work is taking place at night between the hours of 7pm to 6am to minimise traffic disruption, except for Sundays, when daytime work will take place, between 8:00am and 5:00pm.”

A five-man crew is responsible for traffic management, as the road is reduced to a single lane during the upgrade.

“The travelling public has been excellent to date and adhering to the directions given by traffic management personnel. This helps to keep the travelling public and our work crew safe,” he added.
