Good news for over 50 residents in Livaliva Road, Makoi as maintenance works is near completion to target improving drainage alongside roads.
Fulton Hogan Hiways Site Foreman Jiuta Nasere says a crew equipped with an excavator and two trucks has reduced the high shoulders along the side of the road and cleared out waste and vegetation from drains.
He adds that high shoulders refer to places where the side of the road is higher than the main pavement surface.
Nasere says the high shoulders trap water on the road surface, where it damages the pavement seals, which is something they have worked on a number of areas.
He says that resolving drainage problems have become critical in the face of the rainy spells that the country experiences.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
