Monrovia — The controversial Minister of Public Works, Dr. Antoinette G. Weeks, Tuesday, June 3, 2014 condemned Solid Rock Construction Company for what she called the poor performance carried out by the company on the Rivercess-Sinoe Road.
Minister Weeks made the condemnation yesterday when she appeared before the Senate to provide update on the status of road projects in the country, including the Rivercess-Sinoe Road.
Responding to questions from several senators regarding the status of the Rivercess- Sinoe Road Project, Minister Weeks averred that work done on that corridor does not commensurate with payment already made to the contractors.
According to the Liberia's first female Public Works Minister, 5 million of the 7 million intended for work on the road has already been disbursed to the Solid Rock Construction Company.
But no substantial work has been done.
The Works Minister recalled that the last time she travelled on the road, she was disappointed on progress made thus far, adding there is no scope of work and detailed engineering design for the project.
Meanwhile, some observers say the Minister's assertions suggest that the July 26th celebration in the Southeast would be a major challenge for the government with less than just 4 weeks remaining.
