Development Cannot Come Without Difficulties, Public Works Minister
MONROVIA, December 24 (LINA)-Public Works Minister Guyde Moore has said Liberia will have to go through inconveniences to attain its development agenda.
Moore clarified that the recent road construction which led to traffic congestion on the Bushrod Island, was intended to avert the loss of essential revenue by government, as work done by the public works ministry during the weekend was damaged by drivers and needed to be urgently repaired.
He made the clarification at the ministry of information daily Ebola press conference held at the ministry in Monrovia Tuesday.
Moore explained that due to the lack of equipment, the public works ministry fell behind schedule and was constrained to construct the road within the LPRC vicinity on Sunday, December 21.
He noted that although the construction site was barricaded with caution tape, it was removed by some drivers who rode over the surface, thus causing major damages which needed to be repaired by the public works ministry.
Meanwhile, Moore has apologized to the public for the inconvenience caused, but noted that with the completion of the job, traffic in the area will now move freely.
In a related development, Moore has indicated that several measures will be put in place to prevent major inconvenience during the construction of the Somalia Drive as well as the road leading from the National Port Authority to Logan Town.
