Nokonoko Roundabout Work Starts

THIS will be carried out from 9pm to 6am daily, until January 15

The Fiji Roads Authority is advising the public wanting to travel to and from Nokonoko Rd, Laucala Beach, that pre-works at the Nokonoko roundabout started last night.

The roundabout is at the intersection of Golf Link Rd, Jerusalem Rd and Nokonoko Rd. Works will start daily from 9pm to 6am, until January 15, 2018.

FRA general manager network operations and maintenance, Aram Goes, said the pre-works were for future intersection lighting and part of a plan to fully resurface the roundabout.

The surfacing works are part of the FRA Mill-and-Fill programme, which will start next week.

He said initial pavement tests carried out confirmed that the pavement layer was intact and stable therefore only the surface layer was failing because of the high traffic stress. Rsurfacing of this layer will be carried out to rectify the problem.

“The planned pre-works are scheduled to be carried out at night in consideration of heavy daytime traffic use,” he said.

Depending on the weather, the resurfacing works are planned to be completed before the new school term starts on January 15.

“Drivers and pedestrians are advised to consider these works in their travel plans and follow the traffic management to ensure the safety of all involved,” Mr Goes said.
