LTA Chief Executive Officer Mr Naisa Tuinaceva said the vehicle was damaged during Tropical Cyclone Winston.

TUINACEVA: “The Rakiraki vehicle was one of the vehicle that was smashed during the cyclone and it was used during rehabilitation, it is going to go very soon to the garage.”

Mr Tuinaceva said the vehicle is used for rehabilitation works and has relaxed the booking of vehicles which were damaged during the recent cyclones.

“Even for us at LTA right now, all these vehicles that were damaged during the cyclone we are not touching them because we have relaxed from booking and vehicle that was damaged during the cyclone, that is for everybody’s vehicle.”

Mr Tuinaceva said the side view mirrors were very important.

TUINACEVA: “The side-view mirror is very important but I don’t know whether it’s partially broken, I am not too sure.”
