REPAIR works on the Yasawa-i-Rara jetty is expected to be completed at the end of September after months of careful planning and challenges.
This was the assurance by the Fiji Roads Authority as work on a number of jetties across the country continues.
MWH Global Technical Delivery manager Fiji Don Clifford said planning construction or repair works for jetties presented a number of challenges for engineers.
"The marine environment itself presents its own set of challenges. You need wave environment experts, plus geotechnical expertise and equipment, there are big safety issues, and it all needs to be very carefully planned and controlled," he said.
"You only get to do the job once. So mistakes can be extremely costly, which is why the investigative work to make sure the solutions are right for the environment, and the specialist equipment, is so important."
The FRA is working on the Natovi Jetty, the Nabouwalu Jetty and the Yasawa-i-Rara Jetty.
Mr Clifford said every jetty needed individual design and engineering to reduce the chance of it being washed or blown away in a storm.
