Deadline To Repair Wainaloka Bridge: Hutchinson

Deadline To Repair Wainaloka Bridge: Hutchinson
June 11
10:00 2017

Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) chief executive John Hutchinson said a contractor was working hard yesterday to complete repairs on the Wainaloka Bridge before the next boat arrived from the mainland.

“The intermittent closures are necessary as FRA’s contractor is working to a deadline to have the bridge re-opened before the next boat arrives from the mainland this evening (yesterday),” he said.

He said the temporary closure of the Wainaloka Bridge needed emergency repairs from the failure in the bridge yesterday morning.

“The cause of the failure is yet to be determined and an investigation is currently underway,” he said.

Mr Hutchinson says that the bridge is located on Ovalau’s circular road between the Buresala Jetty and Levuka Town.

“Fiji Roads Authority is advising motorists on Ovalau that there will be road closures throughout the day and to expect some form of bridge restriction in the afternoon,” he said.

“The inconvenience is regretted, and our team is working hard to have Wainaloka Bridge opened.”
