New LTA Office Opens in Lami
The new Land Transport Authority (LTA) office in Lami South Point was officially opened by the Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport Faiyaz Koya yesterday. Mr Koya said the office was a prime location for the Lami business community and nearby residents.
“The new office will give Fijians access to LTA’s services within their locality. It is worth noting that between May 2019 and May 2020, LTA processed over 900,000 transactions in eight locations in the Central Division alone,” Mr Koya said.
He said the Government, through its digital transformation intention, had introduced LTA’s Online services for customers to control their information at the palm of their hands.
“This effectively enables customers to carry out LTA transactions with the newly launched online services.”
He said LTA had registered more than 60,000 customers through its e-Services platform and LTA smartphone app.
Mr Koya said the role of the Ministry of Transport and LTA was critical in this time of post-COVID economic recovery.
“The key focus for the Ministry and LTA will be reduction of traffic congestion, reducing of burden on customers and delivery.”
Mr Koya also advises motorists to follow traffic rules and avoid speeding because it’s the main cause of road fatalities in Fiji.
“Therefore, it is always incumbent on all road users especially vehicle owners and drivers to practice safety on our roads,” he said. better service
