Wainibuku Bridge Approach Undergoes Repair

Over the course of 10 to 12 nights in April, about 25 of Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) workers from multiple teams have been repairing both ends of the Wainibuku Bridge approaches on Kings Road.

FHH construction manager Mark Burns said: “This will markedly extend the life of the pavement.”

“The Wainibuku Bridge at 9 Miles is part of the Accelerated Sealed Repair Programme initiated by the FRA to improve areas following a spate of tropical depressions in recent months where the condition of the road has become a concern to the motoring public,” said Mr Burns.

“Several sections of the pavement have deteriorated exposing rather large potholes in the road that pose an immediate risk to motorists. Once work has been completed, motorists that use the bridge daily will be able to drive through without having to swerve to dodge potholes and other defects,” he continued.

To ensure the completion of work on the bridge, a temporary speed restriction of 30kmh is in place, added Mr Burns, which will be monitored by teams “to protect the valuable pavement work being done.”

FHH is advising motorists travelling between Suva and Nausori to use alternative routes to avoid delays.

“If you cannot avoid this area, please be patient. The workmen on site are there to carry out important work for for the benefit of all those that drive through these sections of Kings Road,” Mr Burns said.

FHH is working under the Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) maintenance programme to provide access to the Central, Northern and Eastern divisions.
