SIDA Rehabilitating 33km Road in Bong County

By Ballah M. Kollie, Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, Feb 5 (LINA) - As part of its road rehabilitation initiative in Bong County, the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), has begun the rehabilitation of a 33-kilometer road in Zota District.

The Belefania-Jorwah road links Liberia to the Republic of Guinea and passes through Belefania in Bong County.

According to Bong County Resident Engineer, Emulus Toliver, the two Chinese Companies contracted for the job have already begun the rehabilitation of the 33 kilometer road.

He said one of the companies will target 20 kilometers, while the other will take on the remaining 13 kilometers.

Mr. Toliver said the secondary road is being monitored by the Project Engineer and the Feeder Road Engineer assigned by the Ministry of Public Works.

“We are doing all we can to ensure that the contractors perform in accordance with the terms of the contract and we will not accept anything less than that,” asserted Mr. Toliver.

The Bong County Resident Engineer told the Liberia News Agency Wednesday that SIDA has spent more than US$15 million on the rehabilitation of the county’s roads over the years.

Roads rehabilitated by SIDA in Bong County include roads in Salala, Sanoyea, Suakoko, Zota and Panta Districts among others, but Mr. Toliver emphasized the need to properly maintain the roads.
