A STOP/GO arrangement will be made for traffic on the Ba Bridge for maintenance works later this month.

The Fiji Roads Authority has advised members of the public that works are urgently required to protect the exposed expansion joints from any further deterioration and also improve the transition at both ends of the bridge deck.

Works will take place from June 25-26.

Maintenance works include cleaning of the abutment joints, milling of asphalt concrete surface, installing plate covers and reinstating asphalt concrete with ramps to the plates.

The authority stated that its contractor would require a single lane closure, and when required, the bridge would be fully closed at controlled intervals of 15-30mins because of the lack of lateral safety zones.

FRA is requesting motorists to strictly adhere to the signs placed and follow the directions of the traffic controllers to ensure the safety of other motorists and workmen alike.

Members of the public traveling along this area are to take this notice into account when finalising travel plans.

Members of the public are advised to contact the FRA on 5720 for further queries.
