The Acting Minister of Public Works has assured Liberians that major rehabilitation of roads across the country will be implemented during the current dry season.
According to Acting Minister Ruth Coker-Collins, all preparations and measures are in place to commence the rehabilitation and pavements of roads across the nation.
Minister Collins made the disclosure over the weekend when the Emerging Journalists Association of Liberia (EJAL) honored her with exemplary leadership award at the Ministry for improving road connectivity in the country.
She stated that road connectivity is required across the 15 counties to ensure smooth access of goods and services from one area to another.
She noted that with the mandates of the Ministry, every county should be having good road condition, but the budgetaryallotment is not enough to effectively execute road connectivity in the 15 counties.
Minister Collins stressed that despite the budgetary constrain confronting the Ministry, road rehabilitation are ongoing in various counties to improve accessibility to these places.
She maintained that good road condition is critical toward the transformation of the socio-economic development of nation building and that President George Manneh Weah makes road connectivity one of the major priorities of the government.
She asserted that roads have significant roles to play to improve the living standard of the people on a daily basis, though taken for granted over the years, but said government is concerned to improve the development of roads in the country.
Minister Collins said her team at the Ministry expressed thanks and appreciation to President Weah for giving them the opportunity to serve their country in such positions to help transform the developmental drive of Liberia.
