The Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) will construct 27 new bus shelters in designated locations within the Western Division.

This has been confirmed by the authority’s chief executive officer Jonathan Moore.

He said it was important that the authority got the best value on these new bus shelters, which was part of its major works within the division and the authority would replace old bus shelters with new ones.

“The FRA has made changes to bus shelter designs because the previous ones were expensive costing them thousands of dollars,” Mr Moore said.

“We didn’t like the previous designs because it was a waste of money, now the bus shelters will be designed by one of our own guys which cost between $20,000 to $30,000,

“The cost of these bus shelters would vary according to its designs and sizes.”

On the same note, Mr Moore also raised his concerns on the high rate of vandalism on road assets particularly bus shelters.

“This isn’t good, it is just wrong and this goes for littering as well, people throw something out of their windows when they drive along our roads, this is disrespectful, all we are asking is for people to respect our roads,” he said.

“The FRA will be carrying out major footpath works within the Western Division, particularly in Lautoka, Namaka and main street Nadi Town.”
