Fiji Roads Authority is working on the Namotomoto Bridge’s abutment protection to prevent further scouring.

“No repairs to the bridge at this stage. The work that is taking place is to prevent the river bank from further scouring and to introduce some rock protection for the river bank,” a statement from LTA said.

“This is a FRA approved work – Namotomoto Bridge abutment protection.”

It also confirmed that the bridge is not undergoing upgrade whatsoever.

The month long process begun this week.

FRA earlier said a feasibility study was undertaken after the recent floods, and such step was important and mandatory to avoid further risk to the current infrastructure.

The bridge is an instrumental infrastructure that links access into Nadi Town and vice versa.
