THE Vunimoli Bridge in Nakorotari outside Labasa Town is now open to all traffic.

Fiji Roads Authority acting CEO Dale Nicholls confirmed the bridge was opened last Friday after engineers fixed it.

Mr Nicholls said a damaged beam in the bridge had caused it to give in to the strong floodwaters last week.

"The bridge was repaired on Friday night, last week and is open to all traffic," he said.

"There are some further wooden beams which do require to be replaced and these will be replaced in the next few days."
