Authority to replace deck

THE deck of the Savusavu jetty will be replaced by the Fiji Roads Authority.

FRA maintenance works manager Dale Nicholls said the jetty was an important stopping point for ships that service Cakaudrove Province.

"The jetty in Savusavu is a typical one and it is a major jetty in terms of shipping," he said.

"We put out a contract last year to do some maintenance work on it to extend the life of the jetty but when they started to work underneath and breaking away concrete to do patching work, they found that they could not find good concrete."

Mr Nicholls said this was a common occurrence in other jetties in the country.

"We are finding that quite often which is why we had to do some very quick work on the deck of that jetty by putting in some steel structures so that large ships could come in and they could continue to use that over Christmas time.

"So, now we are assessing the long-term solution on what we need to do with that jetty."

He said in 2014, the authority planned to replace the jetty decking.
