The coastal defense project in the Municiple Borough of New Kru Town, Monrovia resumes after one month suspension with tranmedeous progress.
Our reporter who, visited the project site recently observed that prior to the halt in late October, work had reached the back of the D. Twe Memorial High School, but is now in Foday community.
He discloses that yellow mechines were busy, pushing rocks toward the Atlantic Ocean while dump trucks conveyed them to the project site without delays.
Several residents spoken to near the project site including Messrs. Joseph Koon, Slewion Koffa, and Josephine Torh expressed satisfaction the project is progressing.
They are hopeful that work would soon reach the Lagoon in the borough. They continue that people can now walk from the direction of Popo Beach few kilomaters from the National Coast Guard Base to adjacent the Lagoon.
According to them, their only worry is lack of sufficient land space so that in the future, the sea would not have any means of returning to break down their homes.
The coastal defense project, initially by the Government of Liberia is being supported by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).Several thousand United States Dallors is being allotted to ensure the project becomes successful to save the Borough of New Kru Town with over 50,000 inhabitants.
