Nabouwalu Jetty replacement and repairs

Servicing a range of ferries, shipping vessels, police, customs and navy personnel, the Nabouwalu Jetty provides a key transportation link between the Vanua Levu and Viti Levu islands in Fiji. Hall Pacific was contracted to undertake interim repairs to the jetty and causeway in 2015 including:

  • isolating the existing jetty and jetty extension;
  • installing a steel deck over the existing ramp to prevent failure of the underlying concrete structure;
  • consulting with key stakeholders to achieve the best possible outcomes;
  • dredging the seabed to provide sufficient depth for shipping across a full tidal range;
  • installing mooring dolphins to assist with mooring of vessels; and
  • conducting repairs to the existing causeway, including the road surface and rock armour.

The contract was carried out in stages to ensure the jetty remained operational during the construction period.
