Massive Faua Wharf extension plan revealed

Tonga’s Port of Authority will extend Faua harbour at the western side of Kuini Salote wharf starting next year.

The proposed plan involves expanding the wharf’s watrfront  operations areas by 250 m  from the wharf’s current locations which can cover sea areas up to Takaunove cemetery at Vuna rd.

The TP$60 million extension plan will be funded by the Japanese government and it is expected to be completed by 2018.

It will put Tonga in a better position to handle new services and the growing trend to more frequent visits from larger ships.

Only two ships at the size of MV ‘Otu Anga’ofa can berth at Faua at present but the extension when completed will allow up to 10 ships to dock at the port, Mosese Lavemai, Ports of Authority General Manager told Radio Tonga.
