Date Uploaded: Dec 02, 2013

MONROVIA, Nov. 13 (LINA) - An official of the Federation of Road Transport Unions of Liberia (FRTUL) Wednesday disclosed that the Federation has embarked on the construction of passenger terminals and hotels across the country.

FRTUL Deputy Secretary General Emmanuel K. Greene  told the Liberia News Agency that the project has already kicked off in Montserrado, Margibi, Grand Gedeh and Bomi Counties.

He disclosed that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has already provided five acres of land situated in the old Omega site to enable the Union build a terminal that would meet international standard.

Mr. Greene said the exercise is intended to ensure the safety of passengers and their baggage while en route to their various destinations.

He also disclosed that there are plans to extend the project to the Mano-River Union countries of Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast and Guinea.

According to Mr. Greene, funding for the project is generated from service fees paid by members of the Union across the country and donor agencies.

Mr. Greene said to encourage this venture, a delegation from the Federation of Road Transport Unions of Guinea (FRTUG) headed by Mr. Alhabj Sekou Souare visited Liberia recently to work out modalities for the successful implementation of the project.

He indicated that the visit of the Guinean delegation’s visit was also intended to strengthen ties with their Liberian counterparts.
