MONROVIA, LIBERIA-About forty-five –thousand residents along the ELWA-Robertsfield Highway stand to benefit from electricity soon.

This follows the ground-breaking of the Paynesville-RIA Electrification project over the weekend.

Speaking to ELBC Friday, May 3, 2019, the Coordinator of the Donor-funded project at the Liberia Electricity Corporation, Henry Kimba, said the project is funded by several funding instruments.

They include the Nigeria Trust Fund, the Transitional State Facility, and European Union among others, under the African Development Bank (ADB).

Mr. Kimba said pre-construction survey is currently going on for the eighteen month-project.

He said:” The project has two different corridors, the Paynesville to RIA Corridor and the Pleebo to Fish Town Corridor, and the construction will have several phases and two contractors have been hired to do the work.”

According to him, they are going to extend the sixty-six-thousand volt transmission from the Paynesville Sub-station to Harbel.

Mr. Kimba said one sub-station will be built at the Edward Beyan Kesselly Barracks and another one in Harbel.
The LEC official said Fish Town-Harper Project is an extension of the project where lines will be extended from Pleebo to Fish Town in River Gee County and communities in the area will be connected.
