Jetty’s and landings provide essential infrastructure to interisland freight and people movement throughout the Fiji Islands. Scheduled Ferrys service main ports on the main islands however in more remote areas of the main islands and remote island themselves small private operator uses barges and landing craft to deliver supplies and people to remote locations. During periods of stability where the effects of natural disaster are minimal or non-existent the road network on the main and tourist islands are the main source of freight and personal movement.
Where no Jetty’s or constructed landing exist then beach landings are used. This will be the last resort but is common. Access through Reefs through channels can be treacherous but may often be the only method of transport to an island.
The Fiji Roads Authority has the responsibility to monitor and maintain Jetty’s and landings and is currently constructing a data base of technical aspects of each landing. (i.e. length & width) access and water depth. This is however currently unavailable.
