MONROVIA, November  2 (LINA) - The European Union (EU) Delegation head in Liberia, Ambassador Tiina Intelmann, says the Union has provided US$1.8 million to the Government of Liberia to maintain the Monrovia to Bo-Waterside road.

The road leads from the Liberian capital to the border with neighboring Sierra Leone.

Intelmann said the contribution is part of the EU's investment in the rehabilitation and development of Liberia’s road infrastructure.

The EU envoy made the disclosure Tuesday in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, when she led a delegation of EU officials, comprising two Estonian members of Parliament, Mati Raidma and Mart Nutt, to the county.

The delegation was also taken on an assessment tour of the ongoing Mount Coffee Hydro Project.

Intelmann noted that the trip was intended to provide the delegation an opportunity to learn more about the EU's support to Liberia and to also give implementing partners and project beneficiaries a clear view of the impact of their support to the nation.

According to her, contractors are working with the Ministry of Public Works (MPW) to ensure long-term maintenance of Liberia’s paved road network, including the road leading from Monrovia to Bo-Waterside in Grand Cape Mount County.

Intelmann said the EU initially provided direct funding for road maintenance delivered by local contractors under a contract managed by the MPW with the EU technical assistance.

She also said that the contract for the Bo-Waterside road project, which began at the end of April 2016, also covers routine maintenance and repairs.
