The Management of the National Port Authority (NPA) has disclosed plans to complete a 1.8 miles road project within the Freeport of Monrovia.
The exercise, according to the NPA, will include environmental, hydrological, topographic survey-mapping and pavement design, which has already been concluded for review and implementation by the Ministry of Public Works.
The proposed Free Port Road Network, when completed, will ensure the rehabilitation of all unpaved and paved roads, drainages lights and sidewalk within the port vicinity.
“The NPA considers the implementation of the road rehabilitation and modernization project very important to facilitate commerce and trade,” the Acting managing director has assured.
NPA’s Acting Managing Director, David Williams, upon the completion of an assessment tour said the Port management stands ready to implement the second and final phase of the Amoco road.
He indicated 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.
As part of the project execution plan, a three man delegation headed by Claude Langley, Deputy Public Works Minister for Technical Services recently visited the Freeport to inspect the completion of phase one of the Amoco Road Project and other 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, this year, Mr. Williams said.
In another development, a team of NPA executives headed by Deputy Managing Director for Administration, Nyekeh Forkpa has concluded a three day visit to the Port of Greenville.
The NPA delegation’s visit to Greenville was meant to inspect ongoing projects including the closed –circuit television (CCTV) also known as video surveillance to the use of video camera to transmit a signal to a specific place on limited set of monitors.
The exercise is to ensure the smooth implementation of this year’s July “26” celebration in Greenville.
