Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) would like to advise members of the public that the Maururu Bridge at Maururu Road in Ba is closed to all traffic.

Acting Chief Executive Officer Robert Sen says the FRA engineers and their contractor, Higgins is currently on site to assess the extent of damage and to identify temporary access until the bridge is repaired.

“It was reported to us that the bridge collapsed as a truck carrying supplies was crossing over the structure” says Mr Sen.

“The two steel beams of this bridge has badly twisted and will need replacement and commuters in the area are requested to use Natuyabia Road.

The FRA will communicate repair timelines as soon as we conclude investigations.”
