The Suva to Nausori corridor will be reduced to two lanes for the next three days to allow the completion of water relocation connections to the Kalabu reservoir. Fiji Road Authority  Programme Manager for the Nadi and Suva Road Upgrading Project (NASRUP) Zaina Khan said the pipes are located on the Kings Road and the work are being carried out by China Railway First Group (CRFG) in coordination with the Water Authority of Fiji.

Over the next three days, two lane priority may be given to prevailing heavy traffic to ease movement of the peak time flows.In the mornings towards Suva and then in the evenings towards Nausori as has been done previously under two-lane operation.

She said the lane restrictions is in place to protect the multiple teams from China Railway First Group and Water Authority Fiji that will be working on the pipe connections under the supervision of Fiji Road Authority consultant, Montgomery Watson Harza.

Fiji Road Authority  is advising drivers to slow down as indicated by the temporary traffic signs, follow the instructions of the site traffic personnel, and pay attention while driving along Kings Road between Caqiri Road and Pilling Road.

Ms. Khan said this will assist all road users in getting to their destinations as quickly as possible and protect the workforce putting their lives at risk in order to improve our road corridor and the utility infrastructure within it.

The work is part of the significant water utility relocations and improvements being done as part of the Suva S2 Project on NASRUP in Suva.
