WAF has decided to replace the damaged section of the pipe completely, following remedial work on the current damage piece they found that it will start leaking again in a year’s time.

WAF Chief Operating Officer Seru Soderberg says they do not want to revisit the same site in a year to dig up the Fiji Roads Authority infrastructure to fix the leak.

Soderberg says it is best to install a brand new bend piece.
