Fiji Roads Authority: Speeding a Serious Concern, Please Slow Down

Two accidents took place on Wednesday along the four-lane project at Nakasi on the Kings Road.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) chief executive officer Jonathan Moore said it was extremely concerning that despite several warnings, some drivers continued to deliberately ignore safety advice and speed through road works.

“The law requires motorists to obey the reduced speed zones through roadworks. We have already suspended night works and if the issue of speeding continues, then we may end up closing sections of the road or installing physical speed controls,” Mr Moore said.

He said they have asked the Land Transport Authority to consider putting traffic cameras once the work was complete on the entire length to help manage speeding.

“Motorists are once again reminded to please slow down to the posted speed limit through roadworks for their safety and that of the workers striving to improve our roads. At the end of the day we all want to return home safely to our families.”

Mr Moore said they were working with the Fiji Police Force to address speeding through roadwork zones.
