F| FI­JISUN.COM.FJ | iji Roads Au­thor­ity is pleased to an­nounce that an­other of Suva’s busy street will have an im­proved road sur­face as a re­sult of the road re­newal work that will start to­mor­row. FRA gen­eral man­ager net­work op­er­a­tions and main­te­nance Aram Goes says that FRAs main­te­nance con­trac­tor for the Cen­tral Di­vi­sion, Ful­ton Ho­gan Hi­ways is cur­rently es­tab­lish­ing them­selves on­site and the pub­lic can ex­pect in­creased ac­tiv­ity on Greig Street over the com­ing week. “Grieg Street was planned for re­newals in 2017 how­ever the project was brought for­ward in-line with the open­ing of the new FNPF build­ing,” Mr Goes said.

“If ev­ery­thing goes ac­cord­ing to plan, we should be in and out within a week. We re­main hope­ful that the weather is favourable and on our side. “There are no ma­jor util­ity ser­vice re­lo­ca­tion works like wa­ter pipes and ca­bles on Greig Street, how­ever the pub­lic can ex­pect some dis­tur­bance that will in­clude dust and vi­bra­tion from the use of heavy ma­chin­ery.” | PAGE Mr Goes said FRA was clos­ing Greig Street to all mo­torists from 6am to­mor­row and the road will re­open at 6am on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 28 for the Di­wali week­end.

“As a re­sult of the level of ac­tiv­ity and the use of heavy ma­chines, Greig Street will re­main closed for the du­ra­tion of th­ese road works. Mo­torists can con­tinue to ac­cess the area from Rao­jib­hai Pa­tel Street through Vishnu Deo Street and onto Ellery Street,” Mr Goes said. “The work that Ful­ton Ho­gan Hi­ways are car­ry­ing out will in­clude ex­tra drainage out­lets; rip­ping the ex­ist­ing seal; sta­bil­is­ing the road pave­ment; ap­ply­ing a fresh coat of seal to the sur­face of the road and a car park area.” Mr Goes said other busy city streets like Vic­to­ria Pa­rade, Rod­well Road, Scott Street and Har­ris Road had un­der­gone ma­jor re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion works in the past and now had im­proved road sur­faces for mo­torists to travel on.
