REPAIR works to West Honiara roads have kicked off, a month after the cyclone Pam hit the country.
Most of the roads in the city were affected during the heavy showers brought by Pam on March 13th 2015.
As a result most of the roads within the city were dotted with pot holes which affected the flow of traffic.
Following the cyclone, work on repairing the roads have concentrated in the East and Central part of the city.
Last week civil contractors have shifted to West Honiara and started upgrading parts of the White River road. Work continues this week.
Early this week work on patching up the potholes kicked off at the Tropicana Motel and the Bishop Dale area which came as a relief to many motorists.
For many weeks, road sections of these areas have been bad which slows down the flow of traffic.
A number of commuters suggested that some of the trees with their over hanged branches should be chopped off to ensure the roads are kept dry at most times.
Yesterday the road maintenance group continued at White River area.
Meanwhile the Trade Transformation Ltd has also upgraded the Wind Valley road last week which was acknowledged by the community there.
The upgrading work included widening of the road, placing of more gravels to raise the roads by a metre in some sections of the road, fixing of culverts and cleaning of the drains.
