The Vugalei Bridge along Kings Road in Tailevu has been re-opened to all traffic. The emergency repair work was completed ahead of schedule.

However this is only a temporary repair and road users are to expect delays and inconvenience until permanent repairs are made to the bridge

Following inspections, Fiji Road Authority engineers were advised that the bridge can now be open to both lanes and to all traffic.

However, there is a speed restriction of 10km per hour.

“Our contractors have worked tirelessly around the clock to ensure that the bridge can be re-opened ahead of schedule as there was no alternative route,” a FRA statement said.
