Cracks in the wall

Dawn Gibson
Wednesday, March 12, 2014

THE Suva Harbour seawall is in dire need of some immediate attention, as it continues to boldly sport large cracks and major gaps in the foundation of its structure.

One only needs to take a stroll down the Queen Elizabeth Drive during the day to witness the effects erosion has had on the ageing structure.

And this is not solely a reflection of the natural process of erosion and corrosion, but also of a lack of attention and continued maintenance.

The seawall's foundations bear the weight of hundreds of people on a daily basis and with gaping spaces becoming more apparent than ever before, the wall could now pose potential risks to these very pedestrians.
