Approximately 900 students attending Vuci Methodist Primary School will soon begin and end their school day with improved safety, once the bus bay outside the school is completed.

The school is located along Vuci Road, approximately 3.1kilometres north-east of the Nausori bus stand.

Fulton Hogan Highways (FHH), works under the Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) to improve road access across the Central, Eastern and Northern divisions, was contracted to complete the project.

Eddie de Vries, special projects manager, said most of the work to complete the off-road, five metres by 65 metres, gravelled stopping area for buses took place during the school holidays.

“For the students’ safety, after the second term began, the work carried out would cease each day as the children arrived and left school,” said Mr de Vries.

Head Teacher of Vuci Methodist Primary Jope Bukacaca said the lack of footpaths, the narrow road and careless drivers posed a risk to his students and staff, especially when students queued to board the buses.

“We are very fortunate that the Fiji Roads Authority has acknowledged our request for a bus bay. Its completion is paramount to the safety of the children,” he said.
