By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, December 9 (LINA) – The Engineering Battalion of the Bangladeshi contingent of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has begun the rehabilitation of the Gbarnga-Voinjama highway.

Making the disclosure at the Bong County coordination meeting in CARI, Suakoko District Monday, Banengr-22 commander Lieutenant Colonel Maifuz said his battalion will rehabilitate 12.2 kilometers of the 90.4 kilometer stretch of road.

According to him the 12.2 km road constitutes what he calls “critical parts” that got damaged during the rainy season.

He noted that culverts and other road structures will be constructed where necessary, but stressed the need for the locals to support the initiative.

Speaking on behalf of the county administration, Bong County Development Superintendent Anthony Sheriff thanked the Bangladesh Military Engineers for initiating the rehabilitation of the road which he said is critical for the country’s economic development.

Sheriff told journalists at the press conference that the rehabilitation of roads is a routine task undertaken by UNMIL during the dry season, and pledged the county’s commitment to ensure that

the project is successfully implemented.
