FHH Construction Manager Phil Tombs said the upgrade included the completion of pothole reduction sites on Princes Road, and sections of the Queens Road from Veisari to Nakaulevu.

 TOMBS: “Prior to the rehabilitation work on Princes, the road had gone through a multiple of patch works and was becoming a hazard to motorists.We dug out the deteriorated top 125 millimeters and refilled it with new gravel before it was stabilized to 250 millimeters and then sealed. Not only will motorists have a more pleasant ride, the maintenance on this stretch will give it a longer lasting and cost effective surface.’’

“On the Queens Road repairs, crewmen had dug out existing material, back filled it with new gravel and cement, which was then stabilized and sealed before the reseal programme starts. Stabilizing teams used set equipment to perform the work that included a stabilizer, grader, rollers, water cart, and ten-wheel trucks to import the new aggregate.”

Mr Tombs added that Fulton Hogan Hiways works in close collaboration with the Fiji Roads Authority to provide road maintenance for the Central, Northern, and Eastern divisions.

Meanwhile, FHH crewmen having completed sites along Princes Road, beginning from Colo-i-Suva Park to the Fiji School of Nursing in Tamavua. Mr Tombs said that the rehabilitated stretch is expected to be line marked by this weekend.
