Ba River Dredging

Fiji

Dredging of Ba River as part of government flood mitigation program.

Ba River Dredging

#About this project

The Ministry of Agriculture engaged Hall Contracting Pty Limited to undertake dredging operations in the Ba River as part of their initiative to improve the management of the flood risks and events through flood mitigation works for all major river systems in Fiji.

The Ba Watershed is located in the north west of Viti Levu with more than 49,000 people residing in the area. The Ba Delta consists of silt, sand and gravel with rapid build-up from erosion in the middle and upper reaches of the Ba River, which subjects it to both river and coastal flooding.

Hall Contracting’s CSD Kikilu was engaged to dredge 400,000m³ and the project was completed on budget and ahead of schedule.
