THE Fiji Roads Authority is yet to decide on tenders to replace several existing bridges in the country.

FRA CEO Neil Cook confirmed they had identified 936 bridges across the network that needed to be replaced.

"In December 2013 tenders were called to replace several existing bridges by 2016," Mr Cook said.

"The successful tenderer will design and construct bridges that are located on Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Kadavu and Taveuni within a given timeframe."

He said that these bridges included Vunidilo, Vunivaivai and Lomawai bridges which are between 35-60metres in length; and Nacava, Wainasusu, Naganivatu, Savu and market bridges which are between nine-13m long.

"Bridge maintenance is an ongoing exercise," Mr Cook said.

He also confirmed that they were still identifying feasible options for a permanent solution on Stinson Parade Bridge in the Capital City.
