Opening of the Ba Moto Bridge and 5 KM of new Sealed Moto Road

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today officially opened the new Ba Moto Bridge and 5 km of new sealed road in Ba. He was accompanied by the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum where they distributed copies of the 2013 Constitution. In delivering his address, the Prime Minister said, “ It’s been a long journey to today, after the old bridge was washed away in the January 2012 flood. Since then, not one, but two Irish crossings had to be built here after the first was destroyed in the March flood, which devastated the entire Western Division. While the Irish Crossing was a necessary and important temporary measure, it prevented passage during high water. No longer. Now, the temporary crossing has given way to a new, permanent bridge.”
