A RECENT accident at the Lomawai Bridge in Sigatoka serves as a timely reminder to bus operators that weight and other restrictions on bridges are not put in place without good cause, says the FRA.

CEO Neil Cook said restrictions were put in place on roads and bridges because they were necessary for the safety of the public.

"We urge all road users to adhere to all restrictions and limits placed on roads and bridges, including temporary speed restrictions at construction sites," Mr Cook said in a statement.
