FRA Chief Executive Officer, Jonathan Moore says some drivers continue to deliberately ignore safety advice, and speed through road works.

Moore says like any other workers at the end of the day their people on road work projects across the country also want to return home safely to their families.

The FRA has already suspended night works and if the issue of speeding continues.

It has asked the Land Transport Authority to consider putting traffic cameras once the work is completed to help manage the issue of speeding.

FRA is now working with Fiji Police Force to address the issue of speeding at road work zones.
