Liberia: Kolahun-Vahun Road Rehab Nears Completion

SSF Entrepreneur has assured the government through the Ministry of Public Works and citizens of Vahun, Lofa County that the current road rehabilitation would soon be completed.

Speaking during the tour of the project site over the weekend, the SSF Entrepreneur Chief Executive Officer Shawki S. Fawaz promised his institution's commitment to complete the once inaccessible Kolahun-Vahun road.

The reconstruction of the 63km stretch Kolahun-Vahun road is funded by the government of Liberia and implemented by SSF Entrepreneur, a Liberian construction company.

He told newsmen that SSF Entrepreneur has the capacity and engineers to construct roads in mountainous and rough terrain such as the hilly Kolahun-Vahun highways. "We have the technical capacity to deliver on our commitment on time. We have the ability to perform our task, and we are also committed to help the government open up feeder roads and create employment for jobless citizens throughout the country, especially at our project sites," Fawaz said.

He indicated that besides Kolahun-Vahun highway, SSF has constructed several durable roads in Monrovia and elsewhere, noting that construction works on roads and other infrastructure are still ongoing.

Public Works Minister Samuel Kofi Woods lauded SSF Entrepreneur for the level of work done on Kolahun-Vahun road.

He said when completed, the road will afford citizens of the district an opportunity to travel to Monrovia to transact business instead of travelling to Sierra Leone for business purposes.

He said the reconstruction of the Kolahun-Vahun road was important to the economic survival of citizens living in that part of the country.
