The Melrose Bridge in Sigatoka.

The Melrose Bridge in Sigatoka was lit up in Fiji Blue last night to commemorate Fiji’s 50th year of independence.

Minister for Local government Premila Kumar says they still remember the wonderful day when Fiji won the Melrose Cup in Hong Kong on 23 March 1997.

She says the bridge was named Melrose Bridge by the then President of the Republic of Fiji, the late Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara to commemorate the achievement of the Fiji 7s team.

Kumar says the Melrose Bridge remains an expression of Fiji’s relationship with the European Union, the major donor for the construction of the bridge.

She also congratulated companies and businesses who have existed in Sigatoka for over 50 years.

They are Tappoos, Sigatoka Electric Ltd, PD Singh, Billmoria and Kanta Construction Ltd.
