First Phase Layout of Bopolu City Completed

By Emmanuel Mondaye, Gbarpolu County Correspondent

BOPOLU CITY, March 5 (LINA) – Bopolu City, the provincial capital of Gbarpolu County, has undergone transformation with the construction and upgrading of several roads and drainages across the city over the past three months.

Roads were built in New Bopolu, Dark Forest, Upper Bopolu and Bandi communities, giving the city an urban outlook and making the various communities accessible by vehicles and motorcycles.

Funds for the city layout came from the County Development Fund, an allotment given to counties by the government from the national budget.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) during a tour of the city recently, Superintendent Allen Gbowee expressed satisfaction over the level of work done by the contractor.

He also commended the Project Implementation Unit at the Ministry of Internal Affairs for its cooperation which, he said, led to the full implementation of the first phase of the project.

Superintendent Gbowee hoped that the next phase of the project, which includes the provision of electricity to the citizenry, will be executed soon.

Also targeted for the next phase are the fencing of the premises of Radio Gbarpolu and acquisition of studio equipment for the station.

Meanwhile, owners of structures demolished during the city layout exercise are expected to be compensated under the next phase of the project, according to the budget of the City Layout Committee.
