Following concerns raised by residents in Samabula about bad road conditions and roads still in good condition dug up, the Fiji Roads Authority says all road works have been scheduled and will proceed as planned.

On Tuesday morning, fijivillage News assessed the condition of Ono Street, Bureta Street, Nayau Street and the junction of Ono and Lakeba Street.

These streets have multiple potholes where the pothole at the junction of Nayau Street even has grass growing in it.

Gravel can also be seen scattered on the roads.

A trench was dug on Bureta Street and it has been filled with gravel for weeks.

Some residents say Bureta Street was perfectly fine but it has been dug up for no apparent reason.

They say the road was repaired last year.

FRA has not responded to questions on when the roads will be repaired.
