A major and extensive upgrade is expected at the main entrance of the Denarau Island.

Denarau Corporation Limited chief executive officer, Rupeni Fonmanu confirmed the project to start next month.

“The intention is to have the main entrance renovated so when you get off the million dollars bridge, it would depict the setting of the multi-million dollar island,” he said.

“We expect the project to start next month.

“We are finalising the prices but we have the plans out already.”

Mr Fonmanu said the upgrading of the entry will include putting additional lighting and a garden.

“So it’s more of the landscape that will lift up the setting.”

Mr Fonmanu added: “We cannot put a round figure to it as of now because we are still analysing the total investment.”

Denarau island bridge update

According to Fiji Roads Authority, stakeholders should expect the Denarau island Bridge opening in November if weather permits work as scheduled.

The bridge is expected to be completed by October end, with contractors Higgins (Fiji) coming in to carry out road works.
