- Business & Finance
The Nabouwalu Jetty repair work, undertaken by Hall Pacific, has been completed, according to the Fiji Times.
This maintenance scheme, worth around $4.2 million, lasted four months and included dredging and civil construction works.
Commenting the completion, the company’s managing director, Cameron Hall, said: “Given that the jetty services a range of ferries, fishing and shipping vessels as well as police, Customs and navy personnel, it was critical that it remained operational throughout the construction period.
“To achieve this, our team carried out works in stages.
“We isolated the existing jetty and jetty extension, installed a new concrete slab overlay on the existing ramp to prevent failure of the underlying concrete structure and then set about repairing elements of the causeway, such as the road surface and rock armor.”
Mr Hall added that the company carried out dredging works as part of the project, with stringent environmental assessments and measures implemented to prevent environment impact.
