The first phase is targeting the Gbarnga main street from the Star Entertainment Station to the One Plus One Gas Station on the Gbarnga-Ganta Highway and will include Collins Street linking Gbarbea Street and connecting the David Kuyoun Sport Stadium, the Presidential Palace, Bong Technical College, St. Peter’s Episcopal High School, Gbarnga Administration Building and Gbarnga School of Theology, Sheriff said.
