Lane, Weight Restrictions At Tamavua-i-wai Bridge

Lane, Weight Restrictions At Tamavua-i-wai Bridge
August 15
10:27 2018

The Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) would like to advise members of the public that the Tamavua-i-Wai Bridge will undergo weight and lane restrictions taking effect from 8am, Monday, August 20th  as follows:

20 Tonne- daytime from 5am to 8pm daily and;

32Tonne- single lane only during night time from 8pm to 5am daily

FRA chief executive officer Jonathan Moore said they would be carrying out maintenance work to the bridge substructure that would provide support to the deck.

“Our latest inspection has indicated that there is deterioration and, while the bridge is still serviceable, we believe it is prudent to review the capacity of the bridge with our consultants,” Mr Moore said.

“Upon discussions with the Land Transport Authority and the Road Haulage Association, we have made a decision to restrict traffic single lane (controlled by traffic signals) during the night and early morning to allow heavy vehicles to cross.”

He said the single lane and weight restriction would be in place for the next six weeks.

Meanwhile, the FRA is planning the replacement of the Tamavua-i-Wai Bridge in the next 12 months.

The FRA apologises for the short-term inconvenience.

For further queries please call the FRA on 5720 or email info@fijiroads.org.
