Motorists can expect more delays as major roadworks on Princes Road started yesterday.

Works will begin daily from 7.30pm to 5.30am from Tamavua Hill side up to the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Princes Road.

Princes Road has badly failed pavements, which requires extensive full-width repairs as a method of treatment.

To reduce traffic congestion impacts the majority of these works will be carried out at night.

During the carriageway repairs, FRA will close the worst affected sections of Princes Road to a single lane to carry out structural pavement repairs and resurfacing works. These works are part of the Accelerated

Sealed Repairs programme which will mitigate the current road conditions in these worst affected areas.

The greater part of the pavement repair works will be carried out at night, restricting the road to single lane traffic under Stop/Go Traffic Control.

During the day the contractor will maintain a two-way traffic during peak morning and afternoon traffic periods.

To reduce the risk of rain delays surfacing works will be carried out from time-to-time in off-peak traffic hours and motorists are to expect delays.

Members of the public are requested to make their travel plans with these works in mind, avoiding this route if possible.

These works on Princes Road are expected to be completed by Tuesday (May 28), weather permitting.

Other roads planned for similar Accelerated Sealed Repairs in June include Grantham Road, Ratu Dovi Road, Nokonoko Road and Queens Road (Suvavou).
