Extra lane to ease traffic congestion
A daily traffic problem at Nabua, Suva, is expected to ease in six weeks with the construction of another lane to Suva. The work started on Tuesday after the acquisition of part of Nivis Motors' land and after the Public Works Department won a court battle against the company. The Government had planned to widen the road to accommodate more lanes, which could not be done before as the land adjoining the road belonged to Nivis Motors. Apart from another lane, a footpath is also planned.
