Vu­ni­vaivai Bridge

To­masi Bogin­iso,

Nas­inu

It has been a great re­lief and ben­e­fit for peo­ple of the tik­ina of Nakelo for the new bridge. There are safety mea­sures in place as pedes­tri­ans now have their own path to walk on. The bridge is also a very im­por­tant con­nec­tion be­tween the Bua Road and the Waini­bokasi Road. With many mishaps at the be­gin­ning of the con­struc­tion it took some time in get­ting the job go­ing, but fi­nally a job well done at the end. Also with the sup­port of the two Yavusa’s – Vu­tuvo and Naluna – the work couldn’t have been possible.

Dur­ing the pe­riod of clo­sure for con­struc­tion it had cre­ated prob­lems for school chil­dren from the Bau end to travel to the Waini­bokasi end. And also when the Waini­bokasi Morgue was full vil­lages on the Waini­bokasi side had to travel a longer route to get to the Mokani morgue. It was the same for those liv­ing in the Bau end of the bridge.

The buses also had dif­fi­cul­ties in get­ting peo­ple around these ar­eas. But it was worth the wait for such a land­mark for the peo­ple of Vu­ni­vaivai Vil­lage to be proud of.
