FIJI Roads Authority chief executive Neil Cook has reassured communities in the North-end of Taveuni that the broken Bouma bridge would be attended to soon.

Mr Cook said they were still looking for solutions to repair the bridge, which had broken down and affected movement in the Bouma area.

"The bridge broke down because it was not maintained as it continued to be used even in its rundown condition," Mr Cook said.

"We need to come up with a solution that will last and we will deal with it as soon as possible."

Taveuni Pacific Transport Limited manager Prakash Sami earlier raised his concern about the interrupted bus services to the North-end of the island.

Mr Sami said they provided bus service to about 500 villagers in the area.
