Road users will now be able to cross safely following the installation of the new mid-block pedestrian crossing at Renwick Road in Suva.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) acting programme manager Electrical Musheer Khan said they were committed to improve safety for the road users and the new traffic signal will better manage the flow of traffic.

“Previously we had a zebra crossing to guide the motorists, however, we have now installed a new traffic signal and we are urging pedestrians to please follow the lights,” Mr Khan said.

He said it had come to their attention that some pedestrians were still under the impression that they had a right of way and they were continuing to use the crossing as a normal zebra crossing.

Mr Khan said this was the case before the installation of the traffic signal and the zebra crossing has now been blacked out.

“We are advising the road users to please follow the traffic signals at all times,” he said.
