After a groundbreaking of a 14million dollars Fish Town to Harper road by the Ministry of Public Works, the Ministry has assessed more infrastructural projects across the country.
During the tour in the southeastern region, the Ministry of Public Works team visited several road projects in Maryland, River Gee and Grand Kru Counties including the on-going rehabilitation of Pleebo to Barclayville road and other feeder roads within these localities.
Other areas visited in the southeastern region by the Ministry’s team were the Tubman University, Cape Palmas High School, Fish Town and Harper City halls and other newly constructed schools and clinics under the project with the objective of inspecting and positively aimed at strengthening local participation and ownership through massive sensitization and awareness.
Speaking at a news conference in Monrovia Deputy Public Works Minister Johnson Gwaikolo said at the result of the exercise.
“We’ve now declared the Gam Bridge on the Pleebo to Barclayville highway as an emergency with our contract management team instructed to do an addendum to the current contract, thus accommodating the full scale rehabilitation of this bridge.”
He also announced the completion of the bridge which connects Grand Bassa, Rivercess and Sinoe Counties that suffered recent collapse following a tragic accident.
