Members of the travelling public are advised that Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) contractors will be closing access to Nakasi Road from Kings Road intersection for the four-lane project.

FRA chief executive officer Jonathan Moore said: “As a consequence there will be “No Right Turn” from Kings Road into Nakasi Road.

All access to Nakasi Road will be via the detour route below:

  • Access to Nakasi Road via Vishnu Deo Road, then turn left into Vavalagi Road;
  • Nakasi residents wanting to access Kings Road can do so by following detour signs to Vavalagi Road, then turn right in to Vishnu Deo Road then on to Kings Road.

In addition to the above “No Right Turn” movement the FRA highlights additional changes to all the intersections on Kings Road from Adi Lady Davila to Toga Road as follows:

  • Adi Lady Davila T- Junction will be a signalised intersection (i.e. Traffic Lights);
  • Nakasi Road has no right turn (left in and left out only);
  • Gagali Road has no right turn (left in and left out only);
  • Buabua Road has no right turn (left in and left out only);
  • Sasawira Street has no right turn (left in and left out only);
  • LDS X- Junction will be a signalised intersection (i.e. Traffic Lights);
  • Waidamudamu T- Junction will be a signalised intersection (i.e. Traffic Lights)
  • FNU T- Junction will be a signalised intersection (i.e. Traffic Lights);
  • Koronivia Road intersection will be a 4-Lane Roundabout;
  • Dalip Street has no right turn (left in and left out only);
  • Raghurag Street/ Dalip Street has no right turn (left in and left out only); and
  • Toga Road has no right turn (left in and left out only).

“These changes to the original design have been required in response to the increasing traffic volumes and to manage the future traffic growth and congestion impacts,” Mr Moore said.

Members of the public are requested to strictly follow the traffic management signage in place to ensure the safety of other motorists and workforce alike.

Those travelling along this area are advised to consider this notice when finalising travel plans. For further queries please call the FRA on 5720.

“We apologise for any inconvenience,” Mr Moore said.
