October 6, 2015 6:25 pm
Motorists are now able to travel with ease with the completion of a Bailey bridge at Vatudova outside Labasa town.
The 30m single-lane bridge is a on the main highway between Labasa and Seaqaqa.
Fulton Hogan Hiways, Natua Depot Manager Nokati Ceguvinaka says their main challenge was congestion of traffic as the bridge is on the main road, which is used by everyone.
Ceguvinaka says the bridge plays an important role in the local economy.
Cane trucks cross the bridge to take sugar cane from Seaqaqa and nearby areas to crush at the Labasa Sugar Mill.
The Bailey bridge will remain in service until the existing damaged bridge is refurbished
