THE Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) has undertaken extensive programme of jetty rehabilitation and replacement in support of inter-island accessibility.

This was highlighted Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Disaster Management and
Meteorological Services, Jone Usamate in Parliament last week.

“Some of the rehabilitation has been completed in Lakeba and Savusavu and work is about to commence on the rehabilitation of the Vanuabalavu Jetty,” Mr Usamate said.

In a major plan to bring major jetty facilities up to an international standard, FRA is about to award a feasibility, investigation and detailed, design contract for new jetties at Natovi, Nabouwalu and Savusavu with construction expected to commence in the Year 2021,” he said.
