By Moses Sonkarlay

(mylbsonline/Liberia)-Government is warning against the construction of illegal structures along major highways in Liberia.

President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf said: “Government is aware that some citizens were engaged in the illegal construction of structures on the Redlight-Gbarnga Highway.”

“Government has already spent more than US$6m for the removal of structures from the Redlight-Gbarnga Highway to facilitate the pavement of the road,” President Johnson-Sirleaf also said.

“Those who are illegally constructing structures within the highway will bear the consequences,” She warned.

The President Also said: “Government has exhibited high degree of leniency, because it is sensitive to the needs of its people. Government will not allow the building of illegal structures to impede the process.”

The Liberian Leader made the statement Monday April 29, 2013 when she spoke on her monthly program, “Conversation with the President” on ELBC Radio.

Meanwhile, the President has disclosed that government is presently conducting feasibility studies on the Gbarnga-Menekoma Highway for the highway’s pavement.

President Johnson-Sirleaf urged Liberians to make sacrifices and cooperate with government to achieve development in the country.

The Gbarnga-Menekoma Highway links the central Liberian region of Bong County to Lofa County in the North of the country.
