Rehabilitation of the Somalia Drive (Gardnersville Road) is expected to commence soon to repair the damaged sections as well as widening the road shoulder, which will enable free movement of pedestrians and traffic as construction of two lane pavement by Japanese Government was being awaited.
This was revealed by the Minister of Public Works, Mr. W. Gyude Moore while addressing a news conference on Saturday last week. He said he was discussing with the contractor and Japanese government officials to see construction of the two lanes start end of this May.
He also revealed that the government will rehabilitate a total of 25 community roads from Congo Town, Paynesville and Gardnersville before the rainy season in order to relief users.
Construction of Caldwell Bridge in Liberia is due for completion by August this year. The minister said they had requested the contractor to ensure two shifts of work since they were carrying one shift. Delays were attributed to postponement of the project due to the Ebola outbreak back in 2014.
The road construction project will progress under the supervision of the ministry to ensure quality of the project and timely completion according to the minister. He said the Monrovia Ganta project was being done well and the Gbarnga to Ganta section was due for completion before the advent of the dry season.
