There will be a loop road adjacent to the suspension bridge at Korotari in Labasa this year, Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea has confirmed.

He said the loop road would connect people on the other side of the Labasa River and reduce traffic congestion.

“Almost every month we have been meeting Fiji Roads Authority, Labasa Town Council and Land Transport Authority looking at various solutions to traffic congestion,” Mr Vocea said.

“We are taking into consideration all aspects of development and traffic management to make sure we get a win-win situation.

“Traffic congestion is real and we are trying our best meeting with the stakeholders to come up with amicable solutions and having the loop road is the best.

“The FRA has visited the site and carried out some studies. Right now we don’t have any alternative.

This loop road will allow people from Korotari and nearby areas to pass through Vunicuicui and Siberia to reach Labasa Town.”

He said the plan would help support the bigger development in the near future like the Damodar Complex in Labasa.
