The morning peak hour traffic has been flowing smoother than usual for the past few weeks. This is because the Police officers on duty at different key points are connected.

Police chief of operations, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abdul Khan, said it was because Police officers controlling traffic from Nakasi to Suva were now able to communicate.

He said members of the public can now see them wearing headsets.

“The officer on duty in Nabua is connected to the officer at Centrepoint and they can liaise with each other,” Mr Khan said.

“This allows them to control the flow of traffic from each point and the congestion is controlled.

“We have received positive feedback from members of the public.”

Nausori resident Jayant Singh said he used to leave before 6am to ensure that he does not run into traffic. He said now he leaves home at 6.30am.

Taxi driver Vikash Anand said it was good the Police were controlling the traffic and had communication devices. He said now, traffic was flowing.
