The Suva City Council is working with the Fiji Road Authority (FRA) to come up with a parking solution for the busy Bailey Bridge Market.

Suva and Lami special administrator Isikeli Tikoduadua said with people now choosing to go to markets closer to homes and avoiding large crowds, the Bailey Bridge and Raiwaqa Markets had picked up traffic.

“The Bailey Bridge Market, especially has been very busy. With a large number of people we also have a large number of cars. On the weekends, this venue has been known to cause vehicle traffic havoc,” he said.

“We are talking with FRA to come up with a plan for parking. Right now, we are encouraging people to park in Jerusalem Road which leads to Nivis Motors, but we still have people parking along Nokonoko Road blocking one lane.

“We will definitely come up with a solution.”

Regular shopper at Bailey Bridge, Suren Singh, said he parked at Jerusalem Road because he knew the risk of parking in Nokonoko Road.

“People have to use their common sense and park a little distance away. It takes a walk of less than a minute to get to the vegetables and fish,” he said.

Taxi driver Ashwin Lal said he avoided the road on the weekends because at times he would be stuck there for more than five minutes.
