LIBERIA: Long Last Public Works Dedicates Timbo River Bridge August 7, 2019

Following the renovation of the Timbo River which  prior to its dedication posed a serious threat to commuters and other who ply the route of  that southeastern county of Ricercess, the Ministry of Public Works has announced that it will reopened the bridge after being closed for months.

The Ministry said  the opening of the Timbo River Bridgeis slated for the 7th of August 2019, at which time vehicles will be allowed to access said bridge; thereby allowing the free movement of pedestrians and vehicles to boost trade and commerce in that part of the country.

The Ministry however encourages all citizens to adhere to this announcement so as to prevent accidents that could claim lives and properties.

In a related development, the Ministry of Public Works has commenced consultative discussions with those likely to be affected by the construction of two interchange bridges in Monrovia, precisely the Congo Town belt during the construction period.

The Ministry has therefore advised all residents within the vicinity of the Project to begin making preparations for relocation.

The Ministry has however assured adjoining property owners who will be affected that a just compensation will be made consistent with approved standard.
