He said drivers are asked to avoid driving through water because the depth is hard to gauge.

Please do not to drive through flooded roads and find alternative routes where possible.

Mr Garland said FRA is closely monitoring the situation of the roads for all divisions.

Here is the latest update:

  • Nadi Town closed (Queens Rd and Denerau Rd)
  • Nadi Airport to Lautoka open
  • Lautoka to Rakiraki open – 4WD recommended in some areas of surface flooding otherwise OK
  • Rakiraki to Suva open

Mr. Garland said they are closely monitoring the situation of the roads for all divisions.

We are urging the pubic to take the necessary precautions and stay out of floodwater.
