Commuters along the Queens road have been unable to pass through as a landslide in Veisari outside of Lami has effectively halted traffic in the area with police closing the road.

Fiji One news has been informed the landslide occurred at around 3 am this morning due to the heavy rain.

Motorists traveling along this area should expect delays as clearing could take some time.

Fiji Roads authority has confirmed their contractor Fulton Hogan Hiways is currently clearing the site.

FRA CEO Jonathan Moore has confirmed that both lanes are closed and impassable at this stage.

Moore says the closure will remain in place until the road is safe for the public.

The slip material extends across approximately 60m length of the Queens Road with the buildup of debris over 2m deep.
