The Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) said five roads are still closed in the Central Division, six in the Western Division plus one each in the Eastern and Northern Division.

It said the Naitasiri road is closed and cannot be accessed because to the culvert being undermined.

FRA said the Rabi Coastal Road in the Northern Division is closed due to two major slips but should be opened by the middle of the month.

The Katudrau road and the Nauria road in the Western Division remain closed.
