The Newest Wharf – Taufaha’au Tupou IV is expected to commence operation next month.
Spokesperson for the Ministry of Infrastructure says, once the paper work is finalized all domestic vessels will be operating from Taufa’ahau Tupou IV wharf while the Queen Salote Wharf will be for international vessels only including the cargo ships.
With the new wharf, four vessels can dock at the same time with the new terminal which can cater for 400 people at the ground floor.
Its restaurants and stalls inside can also cater for more than 100 people.
The Taufa’ahau Tupou IV Wharf was officially opened earlier this month by His Majesty – King Tupou VI.
This project was funded by the Government of Japan at a cost of more than 66 million pa’anga.
