Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) Programme Manager for Bridges and Jetties Nixon Toremana confirmed this in a statement.

TOREMANA: “The Lomawai 1 Bridge was among one of the priority bridges identified by FRA needing immediate replacement.”

He said Fletcher Construction Company has confirmed that work is progressing well and the bridge is nearing completion.

TOREMANA: “We would like to advise the public that the pedestrian path will be open during the temporary closure.”

Fletcher Construction Company was awarded the tender to design and build four long bridges that also include the Vunivaivai Bridge, Vunidilo Bridge and Cogeloa FSC1.

Work on the Vunivaivai and Vunidilo Bridge were completed earlier this year and work on Cogeloa Bridge started last month and is progressing.
