(elbcradio.com/March 4, 2016)-  The Government of Liberia says it needs additional two billion United States Dollars to address the country’s road infrastructure challenges.

Public Works Minister, Gyude Moore, disclosed that poor road infrastructure remains a major impediment to Government’s service delivery to its citizenry.

Minister Moore said; “Of the one thousand four hundred primary roads, only seven percent has been paved.”

“The situation is largely contributing to poverty, especially in rural parts of Liberia,” he noted.

Minister Moore spoke Friday, March 4, 2016 in an interview with elbcradio.com.  The Public Works Minister named markets, hospitals and education as the worst- affected sectors in Liberia’s governance process.

Minister Moore, however, attributed the situation to the country’s low density position as compared to other countries of the world.Meanwhile, Mr. Moore has assured that government will continue to work along with international partners to remedy the situation.
