Hundreds of people are stuck in traffic along the Suva-Lami corridor due road works being carried out near Suvavou Village.
The traffic jam is from the Walu Bay roundabout to Wailekutu and it started at around 9 in the morning.
Some motorists say they have been stuck in traffic for more than two hours now as one side of the road has been closed off.
The Fiji Roads Authority confirms that these roads works will continue until next week.
It says they are carrying out road works in Lami during off peak hours only.
The FRA says they have repeatedly advised the general public through public advisory that for certain periods in dry weather the road will be temporarily reduced to single lane and full traffic management will be present on site to guide motorists safely through the site.
A man who is in the country on vacation says he would have missed his flight from Nausori Airport if he had waited for the traffic to clear.
Ha says he had to turn back and drive towards Nadi International Airport in order to catch a different flight.
