At long last hope is underway for thousands of students who commute between the Grand Bassa Community College (GBCC) and Buchanan City as well as other parts of the county.
The President has instructed Public Works Ministry to determine the cost of the Bridge at a townhall event held in Buchanan on the sidelines of his third nationwide tour.
Grand Bassa Superintendent, Janjay Baikpeh confirmed the news in a social media reaction ‘The president has instructed the public works Minister to determine the cost of the bridge, this is under control.’
For several years, the route was impassable for vehicles due to the deplorable bridge, making several to walk between the bridge and the school daily which is approximately fifteen minutes. Moving vehicles have to stop at the foot of the bridge since the route remains impassable.
Citizens of the county continuously frowned on the dilapidated look of the bridge while other determinations were made for projects in other parts of the county doing county sittings.
Weah spent a full day working visit, breaking grounds for new bridge and dedicated projects already done by his government.
The Fairgrounds road pavement, old folks home construction were dedicated while the President broke grounds for the construction of a 100 bedroom hospital.
The hospital is expected to support the Liberian Government Hospital in Buchanan which has since outlived its usefulness.
There are reports that the President is expected to electrify the streets of Buchanan before heading to Greenville Sinoe county later Thursday.
