Broken bridge concerns residents

RESIDENTS living along the Tabia-Naduri Rd in Macuata are concerned with the deteriorating condition of a bridge in the area.

Four planks on the bridge broke a week ago hampering the flow of traffic and daily movement of residents.

Yalava villager Iokimi Gade said they were worried about the present condition of the bridge.

He said the planks had been broken and left unattended by the authorities over the past week.

With the new school year commencing this week, Mr Gade said it was only proper for the authorities to address the issue because many students, working people and daily shoppers use the bridge.

Another resident Agni Prasad is pleading with authorities to look into the matter. He said it would mean a lot if the bridge was fixed as soon as possible because it would help them in their daily travel.

When contacted yesterday, Fiji Roads Authority CEO Neil Cook said officials in Labasa were attending to the matter.
