January 11, 2018 12:12 am
Two of Suva’s main bridges have been opened in the last hour by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
The Stinson Parade and Vatuwaqa bridges are expected to ease traffic congestion in and around the capital.
It will be a memorable day for the public especially motorists with the opening of the Stinson Parade bridge and the Vatuwaqa bridge.
Both bridges were opened by the Prime Minister.
The opening of the Stinson Parade Bridge is expected to ease traffic congestion faced by motorists who travel around the city everyday while the Vatuwaqa Bridge is expected to ease traffic from the Vatuwaqa and Laucala bay areas.
The Prime Minister says Fiji has faced a lot of traffic due to the closure of both bridges but that will change from today.
Both bridges were closed for more than two years.
The bridges were scheduled to open around mid-year however work has been quick which enabled it to be opened five months early.
Traffic will begin flowing from Stinson Parade Bridge at 2pm while traffic at the Vatuwaqa Bridge is easily flowing.
