This situation report is to advise of the status of FRA’s assets due to the effect of TC Yasa.

  • Both Queens Road and Kings Road are open, however, at some sections the road is restricted to single lane access.
  • A total of 101 roads is currently affected.
  • 24 roads closed in the Central Division, 17 roads closed in the Eastern Division, 18 roads closed in the Western Division and 42 roads closed in the Northern Division

 

The FRA is closely monitoring the situation for all divisions.

  • Do not swim, drive or walk in flood waters. If the roadway has been flooded, please take a detour as floodwaters can be deceptively strong.
  • Flooded roadways can be more dangerous than they appear because the road may have washed away or maybe deeper than it appears with hidden hazards such as debris, sharp objects etc. Please be extremely cautious.
  • Be aware of the possibility of rock falls, landslides and debris on the roadway amidst heavy rain.
