MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Liberia’s Chief Executive, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf will lead an array of government officials Friday to break grounds for the construction of a 40-kilometer road in Gbarpolu County.

President Johnson-Sirleaf’s entourage will include members of the Gbarpolu County Legislative Caucus.

The road, according to Gbarpolu County Senator, Armah Jallah, will connect Mornla- Kwelleh Town in Bokomu District to Palakwelleh Headquarters and to several other towns and villages in Geu-Nwolaila District.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency Wednesday, Senator Jallah, who is also President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate, said: “The road’s ground-breaking will pave the way for the construction of several other feeder roads in the county.”

“Improvement of the road network in Gbarpolu is crucial to the county’s development. All will be done by the Caucus, with support from the Executive Branch, to ensure it becomes a priority,” Senator Jallah also said.

“Many development challenges facing the county will be addressed when the road network is improved.”

He expressed concern about lack of road connectivity in the six administrative districts of Gbarpolu County and lauded the Liberian Leader for endorsing the caucus' recommendation for government to construct roads throughout the county.

The Gbarpolu County Lawmaker hoped that with the construction of the 40km road and rehabilitation of other feeder roads in the county, various GSM companies will extend their coverage to Gbarpolu and provide easy access to communication for the citizens.

Meanwhile, Jallah is calling on Gbarpolu citizens to join the government in enhancing basic social services in the county by giving their fullest support to various projects.
