Dredging program for the Government of Fiji to remove sediment build up.

Nadi River Stage 1 - 3

#About this project

The Nadi River is a Fijian river which suffers from floods every year, causing major damage to infrastructure and problems with public health. To tackle the problem, the Government of Fiji carries out a dredging program on the rivers to remove sediment build up.

From 2008 to 2010, Hall Contracting (Fiji) Pty Limited was awarded three separate contracts to remove a total of 1.2 million cubic metres of sediment from a section of the Nadi River, extending 1.2km out to sea from the river mouth, to a point 7.7km upstream from the mouth. A channel was dredged approximately 50m wide and 5m deep, with the material placed in secure bunded areas adjacent to the river banks.

Project highlights include the training of local Fijian operators and crew, who are now integral parts of the operation, the training of Government Surveyors in hydrographic survey techniques and improved flood flow conveyance in the river and lessening of flood effects.
