It is noted with in­ter­est of the road re­pair works that is cur­rently in progress at the Ratu Dovi Road, near the junc­tions of Church Street and Qarase Road in Nadera.

I be­lieve the top layer of the bi­tu­men will be re­moved and re­sealed again. There are no plans to have the road widened in or­der to cre­ate more lanes to elim­i­nate traf­fic con­ges­tions, and we all be­lieve was the orig­i­nal in­ten­tion. Some years ago the road widen­ing works that started from the Nokonoko Road side came to a halt at Nadera and this project was aban­doned. The dou­ble lane con­struc­tion stopped at the Ratu Dovi Road near the Reba Circle junc­tion, but the in­tent was to fin­ish at the Laqere junc­tion traf­fic lights. The White Fire and the Lo­mani Taxi bases were asked to move in­wards to make way for the de­vel­op­ment. The lamp post were marked and iden­ti­fied for shift­ing. This heav­ily used por­tion upon com­ple­tion would have de­lighted the mo­torist, im­proved the traf­fic flow and was the best so­lu­tion dur­ing the peak hours. A lot of re­sources are now spent on re­seal­ing and bet­ter strate­gis­ing would have given us both the ben­e­fits on the same cost.
