Authority officials fix damaged bridge

OFFICIALS from the Fiji Roads Authority yesterday fixed the damaged bridge along the Tabia-Naduri coastal road in Macuata.

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

"I have been informed that officials are fixing the bridge as we speak," authority CEO Neil Cook yesterday said.

Some residents had earlier raised their concerns because they claimed the bridge was left unattended by authorities for the past week.

Resident Iokimi Gade earlier said they were worried about the condition of the bridge because many students, working people and shoppers used it daily.

Mr Cook said officials had attended to the problem since Thursday.

Meanwhile, he earlier told this newspaper the FRA was yet to decide on tenders to replace several existing bridges in the country.

He confirmed they had identified 936 bridges across the network that needed to be replaced.
