Roading infrastructure group Higgins have just opened their newly refurbished depot in Tavua after a new contract saw the number of staff located there swell from just three to 19.

Higgins have just begun the new Roading Corridor Maintenance contract covering the northern part of Viti Levu including the towns Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki.

After a fresh coat of paint and the installation of new desks, toilets and lighting, Maintenance Engineer Adam Lyall says the team have settled in and are working well together.

“We have pulled together some of the best local maintenance staff in the Western division to put a real focus on Ba, Tavua, Rakiraki and surrounding regions, he says.

“Our focus is to continue improving the roads for the travelling public whilst giving the Fijian people the best possible value for money and expertise.”

 

Experienced Higgins team

Mr Lyall says the experienced Higgins team have the technology, vision and tools to support FRA in maintaining a sustainable roading network for the longer term.

He says the company also have specialised systems which provide top-level technology planning and support for Fijian authorities in times of emergency.

“Higgins have learnt much from natural disasters and major weather events in New Zealand and aim to bring that capability to assist the FRA when required.”

Otherwise though he says the team are just happy to be working in the beautiful north.
