THE Fiji Roads Authority has yet to formally receive a project to construct the new Denarau Island Bridge, says CEO Neil Cook.

He said it was for this reason the FRA was "not in a position" to comment on issues concerning the bridge.

Denarau Corporation Limited says it will "soon" respond to public queries over the construction of a new Denarau Island bridge.

CEO Rupeni Fonmanu said the statement would highlight issues surrounding the bridge.

"It will basically have a rundown of everything regarding the bridge and the construction of the new bridge," he said.

"We will issue the statement later this week and we hope to also respond to queries from members of the public."

During the 2014 National Budget announcement, government said an allocation of $9.4million had been set aside for the construction of a new bridge.
