Suva’s Fletcher Road Upgrade Completed: Sen

Motorists should expect an improved driving experience along Suva’s Fletcher Road now that the upgrades were completed, said Fiji Roads Authority Acting chief executive Robert Sen.

Mr Sen said the road works were part of a national maintenance programme aimed at recovering and restoring ageing road conditions.

Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) is contracted by the FRA to carry out its maintenance programme to provide road access to the Central, Northern and Eastern divisions.

The mill and fill work on Fletcher Road began at the Kings Road intersection, running through to the roundabout and ending close to 50 metres into Vatuwaqa, said FHH Surfacing Manager, Greg Clark.

In addition, a section of Jerusalem Road that goes past Rifle Range Road received similar attention.

“The existing pavement on these sites were very old and had deteriorated to the extent that if it had not been remedied urgently, rehabilitation work would have become very costly,” said Mr Clark.

Mr Clark said the work involved milling out approximately 8000 square metres of deteriorated pavement and replacing it with a membrane seal and asphalt to form the new surface.

He said due to the high traffic volume during the day and for the safety of FHH workmen and members of the public, all roadwork was carried out at night.
