Talks on bridge design

Luke Rawalai
Monday, February 10, 2014

CHINA Railway First Group is in discussion with Fiji Roads Authority regarding the specific costing of the new bridge designs that had been proposed by the authority for the road rehabilitation project along the Dreketi Nabouwalu highway.

Company spokesman Donald Singh said the designs were not made by the company but that they were contracted to construct these bridges.

Mr Singh said 14 bridges would be constructed along the highway.

"FRA and Montgomery Watson Hauser Global had actually proposed for the original designs to be changed since they wanted to ensure that the bridges along the highway had an extended durability life," he said.

"If the designs change, then surely this will require money as it will mean purchasing quality materials in bulk from Australia, New Zealand and China."
