The Fiji Roads Authority are asking members of the public to be patient as they work out a plan for the construction of two new bridges at Stinson Parade and Fletcher Rd.
The two bridges are deemed as complete write-offs by the FRA and international experts will be hired to determine the materials and construction method used to construct the bridges.
"We are also going to be recommending that they carry out forensic studies on why the bridges, especially the bridge at the Stinson Parade has failed so early. It's likely that it's got to do with the combination of methods and materials. We will need to get some experts — civil engineering forensics — for that," Fiji Roads Authority, general manager Mike Rudge said.
He added that as of next year, a team of road and bridge experts would be conducting similar studies on all bridges around the country.
"We are actually going to be inspecting every bridge in Fiji. This will be done early next year. We are approaching half way through those and we will also be looking at all the jetties. By early next year we will be able to understand what causes bridge problems in Fiji," he said.
FRA has yet to determine whether to rebuild above the existing two bridges that have been closed off or to construct new bridges.
