The Liberia Cement Corporation (CEMENCO) has presented about 200 bags of cement to the Ministry of Public Works to repair bad roads in Monrovia, a press release has said.
The Ministry recently commenced the repair of potholes on Benson and Buchanan streets, Benson and Johnson streets intersection and the Rally Time UN Drive route near the offices of the Liberia National Red Cross Society, among other routes.
CEMENCO’s General Services Manager, James Doe Gibson, told reporters that the contribution was the company’s way of identifying with and appreciating the efforts of the ministry to repair bad roads in Monrovia.
The ministry embarked on the repair of damaged roads in the city center and its environs to improve safety of vehicles and ensure free movement of pedestrians.
Potholes in the city center and its environs have caused vexing traffic congestions, damaged vehicles and posed obstacles to the movement of individuals. Most of the streets in the capital are in very deplorable condition. This has compelled the Public Works Ministry to immediately commence working on the streets.
In support of the badly needed street repairs the management of CEMENCO decided to intervene and assist the Public Works with a contribution of cement.
Meanwhile, Public Works Communications Director, Jusufu Keita, confirmed the assistance from CEMENCO and thanked the company for the gesture.
