  • ‘Eua

    Nafanua Port

    The Marine and Ports Department of MOI propose the following scope of maintenance dredging at Nafanua Port in ‘Eua:Extraction of between 4,000 m3 (at a dredging depth of up to 2m depth) and 16,512 m3 (2-5m depth) of spoil material. The material to be dredged is located on the eastern side of Nafanua Harbour
  • HAÁPAI

    Taufa’ahau Port

    The Marine and Ports Department of MOI propose the following scope of maintenance dredging at Taufa’ahua Port in Ha’apai: The areas of proposed dredging are located adjacent to the wharf inside the habour and an area of shallows outside the Harbour  Extraction of between 2,520 m3(to 2m depth) and 65,700 m3(to obtain between 2 and 5m depth) of spoil material.
  • VAVAÚ

    Halaevalu Port

    The Marine and Ports Department of MOI propose the following scope of maintenance dredging at Halaevalu Port in Vava’u:  Extraction of between 9,600-68,950m3 of spoil material from adjacent to the domestic ferry wharf and Galloway Rock located to the West (see Figure 2.4). The rationale provided for the different volumes is that there will be a need to accommodate progressively larger vessels with a deeper draft.
  • NIUATOPUTAPU

    Pasivulangi Port

    The Marine and Ports Department of MOI propose the following scope of maintenance dredging works at Pasivulangi in Niuatoputapu: Extraction of between 4,000-16,000m3 of spoil material in the channel entrance Expected total duration of works including mobilization and dredging is expected to be 40 days approximately including 10 days of dredging works.

    TONGA CLIMATE RESILIENT TRANSPORT PROJECT (TCRTP) Overview

    The Project Development Objective statement is “Improve the resilience of Tonga’s transport sector, and in the event of an Eligible Crisis or Emergency, to provide an immediate response to the Eligible Crisis or Emergency”. The transport sector in Tonga consists of the road, maritime and aviation sub-sectors.

    TCRTP consists of the following four components that incorporate the four pillars of the Pacific Climate Resilient Transport Program (PCRTP) Series of Projects:

    1. Component 1: Sectoral and Spatial Planning Tools. This component involves technical assistance that will improve the way that climate change is addressed in Tonga’s transport sectors and allows for the financing of updates to analytical and sector planning tools to enable policymakers to make informed decisions based on the most accurate and up-to-date information available. 
    2. Component 2: Climate Resilient Infrastructure Solutions. This Component involves feasibility studies, design and construction of identified road, aviation and maritime assets to improve their resilience to climate-related hazards and/or events. This component involves most of the physical works of the project, which include the rehabilitation and maintenance of roads in Tongatapu, ‘Eua, Ha’apai and Vava’u; the port safety repair works on Nafanua Port, ‘Eua; Pasivulangi Port, Niuatoputapu and Futu Port, Niuafo’ou; the resurfacing of the Salote Pilolevu Aiport, Ha’apai.
    3. Component 3: Strengthening the Enabling Environment. This Component will provide funding to support institutional and regulatory reforms for road sector asset management and maintenance, including measures to strengthen local capacity and to increase the sustainability of climate-resilient investments under the project. In addition, this Component will help to strengthen coordination among relevant institutions, look at ways in which the road and maritime sector management can be improved. This sub-component would include: 
    4. Component 4: Contingency Emergency Response. Since Pacific Island Countries will remain vulnerable to climate change and severe weather events, even with the successful implementation of the first three components, supporting post-disaster recovery is an important feature of the PCRTP. This Component is designed to provide swift response in the event of an Eligible Crisis or Emergency, by enabling the Government to request the Bank to re-allocate Project funds to support emergency response and reconstruction.
