Fiji says road work still on despite receivership in Northern Division

3:01 pm on 6 September 2013

The Fiji Road Authority has given 10 days to the receivers of the New Zealand company Blacktop to commit to further construction in Fiji's Northern Division.

The FRA chief executive, Neil Cook, says roadworks will continue regardless of whether the New Zealand construction company can continue work.

Three business partners from another New Zealand company, BDO, were appointed as receivers by Blacktop's bank.

BDO partner and co-receiver, Andrew Bethell, says the company is examining Blacktop's financial situation, and it is too soon to make any decisions.
