The Solomon Islands government has formalised a deal for the reconstruction of seven bridges on Guadalcanal damaged by floods two years ago.
A commitment with a Chinese engineering firm worth US$9,100,000 has been signed.
The reconstruction is being mostly funded by the Asian Development through grants and loans.
Prolonged heavy rain followed by flash floods in April 2014 caused severe flooding in Honiara and across Guadalcanal Province.
Twenty-three people died and thousands were made homeless.
