WORK on the old Matanikau bridge is progressing well.
The Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MID) is understood to have engaged three local contractors and has signed an agreement with those companies.
At the east bound bridge near Fijian Quarter (the old China Town Bridge), there is one establishment which is now on its working progress.
It is understand that the work on the bridge is one fundamental issue in terms of transportation.
The new bridge is said to bring about improvement to traffic and also allow better flowing for the river, which usually swells during rainy seasons.
The integrity of the bridge had come under fire after receiving damages from the recent flashflood of 2014.
The bridge is said to be open by November this year.
