Weala Market Makes Way For New Highway

By Richard Baysah, Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, March 13 (LINA) - The Superintendent of the Liberia Marketing Association branch in Weala Town, Gibi District in upper Margibi County, says it is relocating the general market to make room for the Red Light-Gbarnga Highway being built by government.

Madam Fatu Coleman told the Liberia News Agency Thursday that the relocation of the market is also timely, because the current location along the main road poses danger to the marketers by speeding vehicles, especially on crowded market days.

She said the new location will be away from the main highway, and that the cost of leasing the current site will be saved, as the market administration has already purchased four acres of land to build a new marketplace.

She put the cost of the land at about US$2,000.

Meanwhile, Weala marketers are commending market Superintendent Coleman and her management team for the farsightedness in moving the market to a safer area.

The sellers told the Liberia News Agency that they have all along been “very worried” about the current location of the market, noting that its relocation was “very timely and in the right direction.”
