Update: 12:54PM THE Vunidilo Bridge in Wailoku outside Suva has been closed.

Announcing the closure, Fiji Roads Authority in an Information Ministry statement released today said their inspectors identified serious corrosion to the steel beams supporting the bridge and a very recent failure of one of the beams at the bridge abutment.

The statement said FRA now has engineers on site to assess if temporary propping is viable to allow light vehicles to cross the bridge.
