Suva Wharf needs to be relocated

July 9, 2016 8:00 pm

The Suva Wharf will need to be relocated in due course.

Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says this was one of the requirements when the government sold 59% shares in Ports Fiji Limited to Aitken Spence and the Fiji National Provident Fund.

Sayed-Kahiyum says if a new site is found, the current port could be used purely for passenger vessels and cruise liners.

“They need to look at a possible relocation of the Suva Wharf to be able to make a distinction between where the freight ships come, where the fishing boats come and to have some modern day facilities. e could then use this simply for passenger cruise liners, lot closer to towns and shops. The ADB is helping us with that – to do an assessment and we hope they’ll come to the fore very quickly.”

A third of the Suva Wharf has declared unsafe for use due to a weakening structure.

Containers are no longer stacked in that area, nor due container ships berth in that area.
