Police officers have continued to work tirelessly clearing debris left by Tropical Cyclone Harold.

A team from the Police Special Response Unit (PSRN) were in Navua on Wednesday finishing their work.

Assistant Senior of Police (ASP) Elia Waqanidrola said they began work at the Navua Jetty on Tuesday.

“We cleared the clog that was stuck at the river mouth that was causing hindrance to the commuters in Beqa, who use the jetty on a daily basis,” he said.

He also said bamboos, logs and rubbish were brought in by Tropical Cyclone Harold.

“We are also grateful to the Namosi Provincial Administrator for providing us with a chainsaw, and other equipment which helped us clear the debris.”

The team will now wait for their next posting.

The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure is advising all Fijians intending to travel while carrying important provisions between Viti Levu and closer islands to call the Maritime Surveillance Centre and notify them about their travel intentions.

Also fishing for subsistence and commercial purposes are allowed during curfew hours, as long as fishers leave their homes well before the curfew hours and return after curfew hours have ended.
