Motorists will now be safer when travelling on the bridge in Vakabalea, Navua.

This is after the Fiji Roads Authority began setting up railings on the bridge.

The bridge was hot spot last year after two bodies were found inside a submerged car under the bridge.

Krishna Swamy Naidu and Ella Blakelock were reported missing on June 21 last year and their bodies were discovered two weeks later in the water hyacinth-covered stream.

The bridge practically had no roadside fenders or any road sign to warn drivers of the approaching narrow bridge.

The Fiji Roads Authority chief executive officer Neil Cook said the construction of the railings would take a few weeks to complete.

He said this was part of wider programme being implemented by the authority.

“We have done assessments from Lami to Pacific Harbour and from now onwards we will be putting up railings in these areas before we move elsewhere,” Mr Cook said.
