Laqere Bridge Opens
The new Laqere Bridge opened to traffic yesterday, 21 January 2009, although complete tar sealing and other related works will be done by early February. There has been a markedly improvement in traffic flows in the early afternoon/evening when vehicles would queue from the bridge right up to near Nasole, Nasinu, along the main Kings Road, and from the intersection near the bridge to Nadawa, Nadera, along Dovi Road. The bridge is a 4-lane one with two lanes going either way.
