Home » News » Construction of the Juba-Bor Road in Sudan begins

Construction of the Juba-Bor road has started after the signing of an agreement between the Jonglei state government and UNMISS. UNMISS is a Korean contingent of engineers who work for United Nations’ peacekeeping mission in the country.

The contract, signed a week ago, will see UNMISS improve the Juba-Bor road. This road has been tempering with transportation of goods from South Sudan capital, Juba to bor.

Construction works will involve improving 204 km of the Juba-Bor road, and the Korean engineers will provide labor, machineries and fuel needed. The construction works will take 3 to four months. One side of the road will first be leveled for use by traders and heavy tracks as construction works proceed.

Jody Jonglei, the state information minister has also said that security will be provided for the Korean team that is working on the road. Construction work is expected to end before the end of this year.

Completion of construction of the road is expected to lead to lowering of prices of commodities from the region, which will help to improve livelihoods of people in the community. People also choose not to travel through this road because it is insecure, thus, improvement of this road will be important to helping the situation.
