Traffic is now open on both lanes along Transinsular Road in Savusavu following the landslide near a settlement on Wednesday.

This was confirmed by Fiji Roads Authority (FRA).

This came after a landslide trig­gered a major halt to traffic. The road had been fully covered with soil and debris making it impossi­ble for any tariff to flow.

A villager, Meli Matalevu who re­sides at Bagaraki Settlement, close to where the landslide occurred said that he was inside his home when he heard a loud noise.

“I was shocked to see soil all over the road,” he said.

A couple, who escaped being bur­ied by the landslide also shared their account and how they called for help.

Police, Energy Fiji Limited and Fiji Roads Authority were soon at the scene as the clearance work commenced on the same day.

Meanwhile, FRA has urged driv­ers to be careful while driving along the stretch in Bagaraki.
