Tonga plans new bridge to connect Hahake and Nukuʻalofa

1
Map of Tongatapu. A bridge across Fangaʻuta Lagoon from Hahake to Nukuʻalofa will benefit easterners particularly thousands who travel to and from Nukuʻalofa for works and schools.

The Tongan government will construct a bridge to connect the eastern side of Tongatapu and the capital town of Nukuʻalofa.

A Chinese team were in Tonga recently to conduct surveys in the hahake (eastern) area and negotiate with officials at the Ministry of Infrastructure about the project, Hon. Etuate Lavulavu, head of the ministry told Kaniva News in Auckland.

As the plan for the bridge was one of his ministry’s strategic and action plan 2015, the minister said the project is still in its initial stage and his ministry was working closely with the Chinese team on it before it would be submitted to cabinet for approval.

Once approved the government will look for donors to fund the project, he said.

Hon. Lavulavu said he has already briefed the Prime Minister, Hon ‘Akilisi Pohiva on the project.
