Rehabilitation Work On Voinjama-Zorzor Road Begins

By Gabriel T. Bundor, LINA Lofa County Intern Correspondent

VOINJAMA, October 10 (LINA) – Rehabilitation work on the damaged Voinjama-Zorzor Highway in Lofa County has begun.

The project is being implemented by the county authorities through the office of the Assistant Superintendent for Development, Youngor S. Sherman.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Voinjama at the weekend, Madam Sherman said the project is targeting nine spots on the highway that are badly damaged and need urgent repair.

She told LINA that her office is working with the China Road Construction Company, Plan Liberia Lofa Program Unit, World Food Program (WFP) and UNMIL Civil Affairs Lofa Office, among others, for the implementation of the project.

According to the Lofa County official, people residing along the road are being hired on “Food for Work” contract basis. Under the “Food for Work” contract, the contractor is compensated with rice and not cash.  

The Assistant Superintendent for Development has meanwhile called on the contractors to be diligent and to also be appreciative of the little they are receiving as they are contributing their quota to the betterment of their county in particular and Liberia in general.

Commercial drivers have over the past few months been finding it difficult to ply that part of the country, especially during the rainy season, due to the deplorable condition of the road.
