The rainy season is full of blessings and accidents in the Country especially in the South Eastern Region.
According to reports from the area, the major highway linking the northern county of Nimba with Grand Gedeh County is nearly inaccessible to vehicles due to its deplorable conditions, a situation worsened since the rainy season began.
The road has turned terrible for commuters; especially business people using it for trade purposes.
According to our reporter who traveled on the route on Tuesday, the highway is partially cut-off as a result of huge mud, caused by a heavy down pour of rain a day earlier.
She disclosed that several passengers were on Tuesday morning stranded near Tappita as huge piles of mud prevented several vehicles from passing.
She also noticed passengers helping to push vehicles from the mud, as several vehicles appear doing break-dancing in the mud.
An engineering contingent of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) was also observed helping, by rehabilitating dangerous pothole spots on the road to provide easy access for stranded vehicles.
The road linking Sinoe to Monrovia is also in a terrible condition, making traveling to that Southern county difficult.
Our reporter observed that the road has deep holes in them, as if the digging was done by people.
According to our reporter who is currently in the Southeastern region of the country, the entire road network in Nimba County is in deplorable condition.
Several commuters, mostly business people are stranded on the road between Saclepea and Tappita in lower Nimba County due to the terrible state of the road.
Vast mud has overtaken the road, making it inaccessible to vehicles. Heavy trucks plying the road are also making traveling difficult. They are usually stuck up in the mud making it extremely difficult for smaller vehicles to make their way through.
Our reporter said several commercial vehicles and huge trucks were on Tuesday stranded in huge piles of mud along the Saclepea-Tappita Highway.
He said engineers from a contingent of UNMIL peacekeepers, helped to recondition the road, resulting into creating free passage for vehicles on last Tuesday. The peacekeepers used heavy earthmoving equipment to clear the road.
Another terrible spot is the road linking Gbarnga and Ganta cities in Bong and Nimba Counties respectively.
The road linking Gbarnga to Ganta cities has been over taken by potholes. This route, which previously took about 45 minutes drive now takes about 2 hours, due to the deplorable conditions of the road linking Gbarnga to Ganta.
