Urban Clearways – Guidance for Drivers on what this means for you

Jun 27, 2019

The Fiji Roads Authority has recently announced the phased introduction of “Urban Clearways” in Suva City and Environs. The LTA fully supports this initiative as part of a package of congestion busting measures.

New signage and road markings will begin appearing in the next few days delineating the roads covered by the Clearway Regulations. Look out for these!

The LTA will be patrolling the Urban Clearways in unmarked vehicles to ensure that the Regulations are being complied with.

Remember within an Urban Clearway you may not stop, park or wait when the Clearway is in operation. This includes taxis picking up or setting down passengers. The picking up or setting down of passengers will have to be undertaken on side roads leading off the Urban Clearways.

The potential consequences of ignoring or breaching the Urban Clearway Regulations are:
1. Traffic Infringement Notice/s issued
2. Vehicle Impounding where an obstruction is caused
3. Towing Charges – an obstructing vehicle will be towed away and you will be liable for the costs

Therefore, if you want to avoid the cost of abusing the Urban Clearway Regulations the message is very simple:
- Don’t park, stop or wait in the Urban Clearway designated areas during the hours/days of operation.
