The Management of the National Port Authority has disclosed plans for the implementation of a 1.8 miles road project within the Freeport of Monrovia.
A release from the NPA says a visual exercise including environmental, hydrological, topographic survey-mapping and pavement design has already been concluded for review and implementation by the Ministry of Public Works.
The proposed Free Port Road Network will ensure the rehabilitation of all unpaved and paved roads, drainages lights and sidewalk within the port.
“The Management of the National Port Authority considers the implementation of the road rehabilitation and modernization project very important to facilitate commerce and trade.”
As part of the Project execution plan, a three man delegation headed by Hon. Claude Langley, Deputy Minister for Technical Services, Ministry of Public Works visited the Freeport of Monrovia on Friday, May, 29 to inspect the completion of phase one of the Amoco Road Project and other internal roads within the Freeport of Monrovia.
NPA’s Acting Managing Director Mr. David Williams during the assessment tour said the Port Management stands ready to implement the second and final phase of the Amoco road; indicating the need for the repair and construction of drainages along both sides of the road; as well as concrete pavement of all internal roads within the Freeport of Monrovia.
Rehabilitation works on the first phase of the Amoco road was done by the United Commodity Incorporated (UCI) and the management of the Supplying West Africa Trading (SWAT) after a stakeholder meeting held in April, 2015.
