REPAIR works for the Yasawa-i-Rara jetty that was damaged during Tropical Cyclone Evan in 2012 will be carried out by Pacific Marine and Civil Solutions Fiji.

Fiji Roads Authority maintenance manager Ian Hunter confirmed the lucrative contract was awarded to the company.

"In the Western Division, the Yasawa-i-Rara jetty contract is valued at $2.6million," Mr Hunter said.

PMCS is a marine construction and marine transportation company.

The company specialises in comprehensive designing and constructing of wharves and piers, marinas, jetties, breakwaters, seawalls and dredging of waterways.

The company was responsible for the construction of the Kadavu and Rabi jetties and is presently working on the upgrade of the dock at Natovi, dredging at Oinafa in Rotuma and the construction of the Qarani jetty in Gau, Lomaiviti.

FRA had earlier revealed the focus this year would be the reconstruction and or maintenance of jetties around the country.

FRA maintenance manager Ian Nicholls said the authority was responsible for about 45 jetties in the country.
