The Natovi Jetty in Tailevu North will be one of the major focuses for the Infrastructure Ministry.
While visiting the site yesterday, Minister responsible Jone Usamate says the Jetty needs more manpower to ensure the safety of the travelling public.
Usamate says individuals travelling to and from Natovi continue to increase and this also demands for better services to meet the demand.
“Natovi Jetty is becoming a very busy jetty, we need to have a better presence of MSAF we are looking at the site where they will build their office and the top where the officers might be able to sleep. Currently, we have officers in Natovi who work 24 hours and then they go how away for 48 hours so that’s one of the areas that we looked at.”
Today I visited projects namely Natovi Jetty MSAF office, Namau water supply scheme, Namata village access road upgrade, Kiuva-Kaba Peninsular road upgrade and water project, Davuilevu to Nakasi 4 lane road and the Sawakasa 1 rural water scheme. Great work progress. #BuildFiji pic.twitter.com/HOfn244uEG
