Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) will be car­rying out a second coat sealing on Princes Road from the Cunningham intersection to Khalsa intersection from tomorrow.

These additional sealing works are essen­tial in ensuring the recently constructed pavements are waterproofed to protect the investment under the ever increasing traffic loadings experienced in Suva.

General Manager Network Operations and Maintenance Aram Goes says works will start from 7am, from the Cunningham end and continue towards Khalsa intersection with sealing expected to be completed be­fore 5pm.

“Although these works do not restrict ac­cessibility, motorists are requested to factor in extra travel time in their journey, adhere to the speed limits and observe all road signs”.

He said there will be delays when the car­riageway will be reduced to one way to al­low our contractors to complete the second coat on one lane before moving the gear to the opposite lane.

“Upon the successful completion of the sealing works, we will further cone the sec­tions to minimise speeding and to allow the chips to settle into the bitumen (commonly known as tar).

“On Monday, May 28, the Contractors will sweep the excess chips off the road and pre­pare for line marking.”

Mr Goes said full traffic management will be present on site to guide motorists safely through the site.

FRA apologises for the expected inconven­ience.
