The Fijian government will continue to improve the infrastructure conditions of jetties in the coming years.
This has been confirmed today in parliament by the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Jone Usamate while responding to a question posed by Opposition MP Simione Rasova on the status of jetties in Fiji.
“For the next 12 months, Fiji Roads Authority will be focusing on the busiest jetties and those that requires most work. This includes the immediate improvement work at Natovi and Nabouwalu to provide improved access, improved waiting facilities and street lighting, looking at carrying out repairs in Savusavu to provide safe docking for the rural vessels and there also an investigation for detailed design work for Koro, Makogai, Moala, Wainiyabia and Vunisea”.
Meanwhile, Usamate says the Fiji Roads Authority will prioritize and carry out improvement work on major jetties that will be completed by the end of next year.
