Residents of the New Georgia Gulf community are calling on the government of Liberia to prioritize the construction of the road from the New Georgia Estate through the back way to Bardnersville area ‘F’.
The residents said that for many years since the original survey that brought into existence what is today the New Georgia Gulf community has had no experience of a built road in the records of the community.
According to the president of the community youth wing, Mr. James M. Gaye, the road which was said to be constructed since 2010 by Rep. Saah Joseph is yet to be built or paved up to present something he said is posing serious problem for residents in that part of the country.
Mr. Gaye said due to the deplorable condition of the road, most residents find it difficult to get out of their homes due to puddles caused by overflowed gutters along the roadside and described the situation as a serious embarrassment for the residents.
However, the president of the Youth Wing in collaboration with the chairman, Bartu Sayon and consultation with Rep. Saah Joseph, is calling on President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to communicate with the Public Works Ministry to have the road placed into plans of the many roads that are to be built and refurbished around the country.
According to Mr. Gaye, if the road is constructed, it will enable citizens in that part of the country become beneficiaries of tax payers’ money being used for their appropriate purposes.
