The four-lane project on the Kings Road, Suva, between Rewa Bridge and Nasinu 9 Miles, is in its prime stages.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Moore says engineers and contractors were working round the clock to ensure progress in all aspects of the project was achieved by June.

“Some of the major works that has been executed so far include asphalt paving works, newly-constructed footpaths and cycle lanes, installation of street light poles, median fences and bus shelters as well as improving the utility services (WAF, EFL and TFL) along the length of the project,” he said.

The two contractors for this project are Higgins Fiji and Dayals Quarries.

Mr Moore said the inclusion of the cycle lane is a green initiative of the authority that has been incorporated into the footpath design.

“This initiative aims to be an influencing factor towards global warming and climate change. Since the weather is deemed to be more favourable in the coming days, the remaining works will be expedited in order to deliver the much- awaited four-lane highway.”

He said anticipation from the general public is at a high as the new four-lane highway project is expected to ease traffic congestion along the Suva-Nausori corridor.

Mr Moore has commended his staff and their contractors for their hard work and dedication.

“We would also like to thank the public for their continuous support and patience during this important roadwork. Please continue to adhere to the speed limits and observe all road signs,” he said.
