PM BAINIMARAMA OFFICIALLY OPENS TWO NEW BRIDGES
The opening of the new bridges at Stinson parade and Vatuwaqa bridge will now ease traffic congestion for daily commuters.
While officiating at the opening today, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said that Fiji is rapidly becoming a more modern and prosperous society.
“Eight straight years of growth for the Fijian economy have meant eight straight years of rapid and unrelenting progress for our nation, eight straight years of unprecedented infrastructure development and eight straight years of better opportunities for all of our people, especially young Fijians.,” PM Bainimarama said.
“I know that spending time stuck in traffic can feel like the furthest thing from progress. It keeps us away from our families and it keeps from being productive. That is why, as Fijians are earning more, spending more and travelling more often, we have also undertaken such an ambitious slate of roading infrastructure development.”
The Prime Minister also thanked the Chinese government for being a steadfast development partner for Fiji since 2007.
The two projects were successfully completed through a $30 million grant from the Chinese government.
