Motorists, local businesses and up to 2000 residents living along Mead Road can expect improved road conditions once Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) completes rehabilitation work soon.

FHH, working under the Fiji Roads Authority maintenance programme to provide access to the Central, Northern and the Eastern Divisions began the rehabilitation work this month, which includes both lanes towards MH Super fresh.

“The sections of the roads to be repaired are heavily potholed and, in some sections, show signs of structural damage,” FHH project manager, Ciaron Kelly said.

“The road has been affected by the stress of heavily loaded vehicles and inclement weather, causing deterioration of the road surface and numerous potholes that are difficult for motorists to avoid.”

Work includes milling out the deteriorated sections, cement stabilisation, application of a two-coat seal and new road markings for the sections.

The many pedestrians and vehicles that travel via Mead Road will benefit from the rehabilitation work.
