Vandalism is one of the crucial factors affecting the condition of bus shelters in Fiji.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Moore says vandalism costs approximately $20,000.

“The most common act of vandalism done on these bus shelters is graffiti,” Mr Moore said.

He said fom explicit and graphic swears to friendship promises, this is an eyesore for the public eyes.

“While we are constructing new assets for communities, we are concerned about the acts of vandalism on our road assets,” Mr Moore said.

“FRA is constructing 125 urban and rural bus shelters,” he added.

In a media release dated March 1, 2018, the report read that the FRA had begun constructing 84 bus shelters around the country, which would be completed within the next seven months, and prioritised the areas in front of schools and health centres.

“The 84 ongoing projects are progressing well and we will have another 41 new bus shelters, 28 in rural division and 13 more in the urban,” Mr Moore said.

“We are advising the public to look after these assets for your own benefits and please be vigilant and report all instances of vandalism to the Fiji Police Force,” Mr Moore stressed.

He added that there would be more bus shelters constructed in the future given that were a lot of requests from the public.
