UNMIL Upgrading Roads in Southeastern Liberia
By John Bropleh, Maryland County Correspondent
HARPER, Jan 31 (LINA) - The United Nations Mission in Liberia ((UNMIL) has begun its regular road maintenance exercise in Southeastern Liberia.
This exercise is intended to create easy access to goods and services for the people of Southeastern region of the country.
According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), the mission's Maryland County Contingent has already reconditioned a 20-kilometer road between Harper, the provincial capital, and Pleebo, the second city in the county.
UNMIL River Gee County Contingent has also performed similar gesture by reconditioning the 55-kilometer road linking Kanweaken and Fish Town, the capital of the County.
The rehabilitation of roads in Southeastern Liberia is an annual exercise usually carried out by UNMIL during the dry season to facilitate the free movement of goods and services in that part of the country.
The region suffers poor road condition annually after the rainy season when the road becomes near impassable.
