Public Works Minister Mabutu Vlah Nyenyan has disclosed that the Liberian Government has deployed companies on the Ganta-Zwedru corridor to keep the road accessible during the rainy season.
Appearing Tuesday on OK FM in Monrovia, Minister Nyenpan said government's decision to assign companies on the road is intended to alleviate the suffering people experienced on the road especially during the rainy season.
He said the companies are currently working on the road to ensure that commuters/motorists do not experience the difficulties they usually experienced during the rainy season.
Minister Nyenpan disclosed that the Liberian Government is the one that is providing funding for the maintenance of the road.
He said the companies have been tasked to continuously work on the road before pavement work begins.
The Public Works Minister said the Liberian Government has reached an agreement with the World Bank for the pavement of Ganta-Zwedru-Rivergee County corridor.
He revealed that seven out of 12 companies have been selected to go through the bidding process for the full pavement of that corridor.
Minister Nyenpan disclosed that contract for the pavement of the mentioned corridor will be signed this October, by then procurement work would have been completed.
He said the government of President Dr. George Manneh Weah attaches importance to road connectivity; as such, it will spare no effort to connect Liberia through paved roads.
The Public Works Minister said the government is currently working on 400kms of roads across the country.
He said the pavement of community roads is still ongoing in and around Monrovia; something he said, is so dear to the president's heart.
Minister Nyenpan said communities that were neglected in the past, now have paved roads.
He said the government would ensure that other communities that do not have paved roads benefit as well.
Minister Nyenpan called on Liberians to be supportive of government's effort to connect their communities through paved roads.
