Nadi traffic issue

Suresh Chand,


I think our local authorities need to consider extending traffic lights to the remaining busy intersections to perma­nently address the traffic woes of Nadi Town.

We all agree that there is no better way to smoothen the traffic flow than the lights.

The traffic lights not only help in the smooth flow of traffic, but it also helps reduce driver conflicts and risks of acci­dents on roads to a great extent.

With the traffic lights, you get a fair chance to move through whichever lane you are on at anytime.

It is not like the “right hand rule” which has no timing and control. Until we talk and organise traffic lights if possible, let’s put in traffic controllers to help end mo­torist’s daily nightmare at the intersec­tions.

Otherwise, the problem will keep paint­ing a negative picture of our tourist town which will be a city soon.

We occasionally do see Police controlling the situation in some places, but only mo­mentarily. I think our town’s traffic prob­lems require the full time attention of the authorities concerned.

Please place controllers at each affected intersection on a regular basis if you un­derstand our concerns.

Please use motor cycles, which are easy to move, and keep the situation under con­trol like you did in the past. If the resourc­es are not utilised to address the problem such as this one, then I think the donation is a waste.

Frankly speaking Police visibility in our tourist town is almost zero.

Candidate factor

Amenatave Yaconisau,


I appreciate the article on SODELPA can­didacy by Nemani Delaibatiki (FS 25/2), but whether it mobilises support of the electorate or not is another matter.

Certainly, they are not there to overthrow the existing system. Surely they are inex­perienced in the institutionalised aspects of the policy process such as parliamen­tary debates and committees to reconcile conflicts. This is a necessary part of the political process where we need consen­sus. This is the formal rule making pro­cess in the legislature. We don’t delegate such legislative functions. This is the rule making process.

Club football in the North

Shariff Shah,


I am extremely happy with the Savusavu officials in reviving the club games at the weekend.

I was stunned to see the hidden talents on display. I hope Labasa football could do the same. They have not organised any club competition for the past three years.

I know Fiji Football Association will in­vestigate all Northern districts and see that these games are organized, not only in the North, but all over Fiji.

Please Mr president, include Nalawa, Vatukoula and Levuka. Mr Lingham, we need your input here!

Congratulations Serevi

Tomasi Boginiso,


Waisale Serevi was inducted in the Mul­ti-ethnic USA Hall of fame 2018 at the 18th Annual Induction and community Award Ceremony which was held in Oakland, California, on February 23, 2018.

It was the first ever for rugby and history in the making. For all Serevi has done for rugby he deserves this sort of recognition and congratulations to the ‘King of Sev­ens’. Congratulations!

Suva football

Elizabeth Singh,


I’m not a soccer enthusiast, but it also doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the Suva football team badly needs a good coach to groom such a star-studded team.

Senior player Pita Rabo should have been appointed as coach back then.

I am 100 per cent sure that he’ll do won­ders for the capital team.
