ABOUT 3000 people living in Veisaru in Ba are travelling at great risk across two bridges deemed unsafe by advisory councillor for the area, Yogesh Chand.
"These bridges have been slowly deteriorating over time and more recently this was made worse by trucks carrying pine logs across," he said.
"The safety of the travelling public is at real risk because of the condition of both bridges.
"Now that the cane season is in full swing, we have trucks with 13 tonnes of crop going across many times on a daily basis.
"I have contacted the Fiji Roads Authority many times but no one has responded to my queries."
The Fiji Roads Authority said work on the two bridges was scheduled to begin in two weeks.
