WORKS have been completed to strengthen Bau landing as well as associated road maintenance leading to and around the jetty area.
This, according to Fiji Roads Authority (FRA), was part of the company’s plan to strengthen the road network in the area.
Working under FRA’s maintenance program, Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) Rewa Depot supervisor, Suliasi Lesianavanua, said the 280 metres of the Bau landing road beginning from where the old jetty begins had been re-sheeted, graded and compacted, two culverts installed and water channels on both sides of the road had been cleared.
Mr Lesianavanua was in charge of the roadwork.
Meanwhile, FHH project engineer responsible for the maintenance of the landing, Wian Cadle, said a crane was used to install three 25-metre long beams beneath the jetty to reinforce the structure and five steel plates were laid on the jetty’s surface.
Recent work in the area by FHH included raised roads to prevent flooding at Tubalevu, Raralevu, Wainibuku and Vuci villages as well as culvert installations at the farm roads at Naduru and Korociriciri.
