Planned maintenance work on Wainibau Bridge at Baulevu Road in Nausori is scheduled for February 16.

The bridge will be closed from 8pm, on this day and will re-open at 4am the next day (February 17).

Fiji Roads Authority chief executive officer John Hutchinson said public advisory signs had been placed on site for the past week.

There would be no detours posted during maintenance works.

“This is a planned closure that will allow our contractors, Fulton Hogan Hiways, with its sub-contractors, Instant Construction, to carry out maintenance works,” Mr Hutchinson said.

He said works include: replacing damaged transverse planks, replacing damaged running boards and replacing missing wheel guards.

“Once the maintenance work is completed the residents of Wainibau can expect to travel on an improved and safer bridge.

“The FRA wishes to apologise for the short term inconvenience.”
