Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) is investigating the use of Bailey Bridges as a long term solution for a number of bridge replacements.
These Bailey bridges offer a low cost, effective and robust bridging solution, that if well maintained will last for many years.
The Vatuwaqa Bridge is a good example of a Bailey bridge that has been in place for years providing continued access to motorists.
The FRA’s priority is to keep the major arterial roads, especially the Queens and Kings Roads open at all times.
The FRA has a supply of Bailey bridges to provide relief on the road network when faced with challenging bridge conditions.
FRA currently has limited stock of these Bailey bridges and we are looking to procure additional stock as it is a necessary alternative when working to keep our main roads open.
