The re­seal­ing work on Buca Bay Road in Vanua Levu by Ful­ton Ho­gan Hiways (FHH) “means a bet­ter and safer skid re­sis­tant sur­face dur­ing wet weather con­di­tions,” for mo­torists, says FHH North Con­tract Man­ager, Ryan Couch­man. Con­tracted by Fiji Roads Au­thor­ity to main­tain the sealed and un­sealed road net­works in the North, FHH will be re­seal­ing “ap­prox­i­mately 15 kilo­me­tres” of the Buca Bay Road, Mr Couch­man said. More than 3000 peo­ple will ben­e­fit from this ma­jor road re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion work of which five kilo­me­tres has al­ready been com­pleted, he said. He is urg­ing mo­torists us­ing Buca Bay Road to fol­low speed lim­its and safety signs lead­ing to and through the lo­ca­tion as there are loose chips and un­even sur­faces. He said that although the road was sealed a num­ber of years ago, “we are re­seal­ing it to pro­vide ad­di­tional wa­ter­proof­ing to the road sur­face.” A 10-man crew equipped with heavy ma­chin­ery is cur­rently on site and work is ex­pected to be com­plete by late Oc­to­ber, Mr Couch­man said. Buca Bay Road runs from Buca Bay to Savusavu Air­port. Among the road users that com­monly travel through this stretch are farm­ers from Tave­uni, Rabi and Kioa, who take their pro­duce to the Savusavu Mar­ket.
