Hon. PM Voreqe Bainiamarama opens the Vakabuli Paipai Crossing
A development that will vastly improve the quality of life for the 150 households.
As a flood-prone area, Fijians living in Vakabuli have long lived in fear every time storm clouds would gather; for you, heavy rain too often meant more than just flooding, it meant that you would be cut off from the rest of Fiji until the waters subsided. But now, your new crossing is more resilient to the serious effects of severe weather, including heavy rains. It stands over 1.5 metres higher than the previous structure, and is fortified by concrete and designed to withstand the elements, this is an infrastructural achievement that will continue to benefit your community for many years to come. A full 32-metres in length, this crossing took eight months of hard work, and a government investment of 1.6 million dollars, to complete.

Fiji Roads Authority’s (FRA) Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Moore is pleased to inform that the Vuma Box, Naisogo and Levuka Market Bridges on Ovalau Circular Road are now complete and open to public.
“The concrete bridge structure has now replaced the previous Vuma Box and Naisogo Bridge, which will improve access and bring great relief to the community, especially to school children and farmers,” Mr Moore said.
He said the Vuma and Naisogo Bridges have been transformed from a single-lane bridge to a standard structure with increased structural capacity. The bridges support a single-lane traffic as well as a pedestrian footpath with safety barriers both for vehicles and the public.
