Fiji's Kings Road reopens

2:02 pm on 2 March 2010

The police in Fiji say the Kings Road is open to traffic, although the Wailotua Bridge is partially closed due to a landslide that is being cleared.

Fiji Village reports the Nadi Weather office expects more localised flash flooding in low lying areas but says it will not be as bad as yesterday.

Fiji's Ministry of Works says damage from flash floods in the central and eastern divisions overnight has been minimal because of improvements to infrastructure in the past two years.

A ministry spokesperson Sainiana Waqainabete told Fiji Live the biggest single point of damage during the floods had been to the Savu Road leading towards the Naqali Bridge in Naitasiri.
