Thank you Australia

Re: Australia’s assistance to Samoa


I appreciate with gratitude the financial assistance from Australia. I haven’t seen the scope of work but I can imagine a bridge and any bridge would have to be very strong to withstand the weight of traffic, stress, and water pressure during floods and heavy rain. 

A bridge is expected to last many years. What I can’t understand is how one could build 5 bridges for only A$1.4 million. It wouldn’t last and may be flimsy. I wonder which one the minister of foreign affairs would like to name after her.
