(mylbsonline/Liberia)-The Public Works Ministry has suspended the granting of permit to construct structures in Monrovia and connecting communities.

The move, according to the Public Works Ministry, is intended to stop individuals from building in alleys and right-of-ways.

The Ministry said: “The building of illegal structures in the right-of-ways is a major hindrance to the ongoing rehabilitation and construction of roads in the city and environs.”

Meanwhile, Public Works Ministry authorities have also met with the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC) and the National Port Authority (NPA) Managements to address flooding and traffic congestion in their operational areas.

The flooding, according to the Ministry, is a result of the blocking of sewage system and culverts along the route.

Public Works Minister, Samuel Kofi Woods, said, “The LPRC Management has also promised to remove tankers along the route. The tankers are contributing to traffic congestion in the area.”

Meanwhile, the Public Works Ministry says it will Friday, May 17, 2013 close the A. B. Tolbert Road in Paynesville.
“The road’s closure will enable the SSF Construction Company complete the construction of a bridge along the route,” the ministry added.
