“THE deteriorating Tabaa Bridge along the North Road of Malaita province collapsed yesterday following the heavy downpours experienced this week.

“Tabaa Bridge was in deterioration form for the past decade and was left untouched by responsible authorities.

“According to the North Road commuters and transport owners, the Bridge has been causing constant threats to their lives while in its failing state.

“The Bridge has posed more danger to our lives given the fact that it has now collapsed after a flood destroyed one side of it this week,” one frequent passenger of the North road said.

“The collapsed bridge means-traveling passengers from Fataleka, Baegu/Asifola, and Lau Mbaelelea will be affected.

“They will have to board two vehicles to get to Auki town.”
