Bad Roads Toughens Travel In Southeast
By John Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, August 17 (LINA) - Residents of southeastern Liberia are finding it difficult to commute between the region and the capital Monrovia due to the deplorable condition of the roads.

The Liberia News Agency Maryland and Grand Kru Correspondent, who traveled to the region Wednesday, said the bad condition of the Tappita-Ganta road in Nimba County, has rendered it virtually impassable.

Correspondent John Bropleh said this situation has also resulted to hike in the transportation fare from Monrovia to Harper from L$3,500 to L$4,000 for one way travel.

He noted that commercial drivers were not adhering to Government’s warning not to raise transport fares as a result of the recent measure requiring reduction of the number of occupants in vehicles to cut Ebola risks.

Meanwhile, the LINA Correspondent has observed that testing of passengers’ temperature as a result of the Ebola virus has intensified at a government testing center established in Ganta, Nimba County.
