The 303 metre­long road linking Foster and Freeston Roads has been reconstructed by the FHHJV crew.

“Before this work took place, the old, sealed road surface had pothole damage caused by heavy vehicles and machinery using the road,” said FHHJV Operations Manager, Central, Mr Phil Tombs.

Mr Tombs said that the FHHJV crew used the milling machine to remove the damaged surface and this material will be recycled for use at other worksites.

The road surface was then treated with the cement stabilization process, followed by a chip seal layer.

“This surface provides greater strength for the volume of heavy vehicles using Amra Road,” said Mr Tombs.

FHHJV works closely with the Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) to provide road maintenance for the Central and Northern Divisions.
