Heavy Rain Causes Surface Flooding In The Central And Western Divisions
Surface flooding around Laucala Bay in Suva.

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) is advising motorists to drive safely amidst the wet weather conditions due to surface flooding, especially in the low lying areas.

Several roads are currently being affected in the Central and Western Division’s due to surface flooding caused by the heavy rain and we are advising motorists to avoid driving through flooded water as the depth is hard to gauge.

Please continue to keep a safe following distance in order to prevent accidents on wet and slippery roads and avoid driving into flooded areas.

In some instance, debris may cause overtopping and erosion around the crossing approaches, occasionally resulting in washouts that will temporarily cut off access.

Public are requested to be extremely cautious and find alternative routes where possible.

Lastly, the heavy rain will inevitably result in an increase in the number of potholes and we are asking members of the public, especially motorists to please be patient and drive to the conditions.

For queries or concerns, members of the public can contact the FRA on toll free number 5720.
