There are now no longer weight restrictions on the Vatudova Bridge located between Nabouwalu and Labasa as Fulton Hogan under the supervision of the Fiji Roads Authority has completed works on the structure.
The Vatudova Bridge is the only bridge that lies on the main highway route from Labasa to Nabouwalu Jetty which had a weight restriction of 20 tonnes in both directions.
This bridge had a thin concrete deck that was in a dilapidated condition and only one side of the bridge deck could be utilised with timber decking for the traffic flow.
The new and improved bridge also has a new footpath and hand railing for safety.
