Acting Prime Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the government intends to make public transport attractive and sexy for people.

He made the comment while responding to a question about traffic problems around Suva during the 2017/2018 Budget Roadshow at FNU Samabula.

He said that making public transport attractive could help deal with the traffic.

Sayed-Khaiyum also highlighted that having fly over bridges could also solves our traffic problems.

He says ideally you should have a flyover bridge probably from the Australian High Commission all the way going up to Waimanu road so that people from Edinburgh drive can go underneath traffic..
