Jetty project to be ready before Rotuma Day

By TORIKA TOKALAU
Wednesday, April 02, 2014

THE Fiji Roads Authority hopes to finish the Oinafa jetty project before Rotuma Day.

Authority capital works manager Ian Hunter said in a recent newsletter Oinafa jetty was in reasonably good state and the plan for this year was to dredge the sand that had silted badly since the previous dredging 38 years ago.

"We hope to have the jetty working by the time everyone goes home for Rotuma Day," Mr Hunter said.

For 2014, the authority has budgeted about $56million for the renewal and replacement of bridges and jetties and this includes the dredging of Oinafa jetty.

Meanwhile, more work is taking place on the Savusavu jetty with the Nabouwalu jetty also needing attention while the new jetty for Qarani has to go through a design process.

The authority said the jetties needed to be strong enough to withstand cyclone condition.
