Commuters advised to collect photographic evidence of potholes

COMMUTERS who have an issue with the potholes on our roads have been urged to collect photographic evidence before they file a report with the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

LTA chief executive officer Samuel Simpson said motor vehicle owners should take pictures of damage done to their vehicles.

In a recent statement, he said it was a well-known fact that there was a pothole epidemic on Fiji’s roads.

He advised that pictures of the pothole be taken from different angles, and the depth indicated by including an object like the nearest lamppost or tree to show the scale.

Pothole location should also be recorded, he added.

Mr Simpson said the Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) was doing its best “in difficult circumstances” to repair potholes, damaged roads, and invest in keeping bridges open and safe.”
