Monrovia, Liberia, Monday, December 24, 2018: Access Roads in the CLSG project corridor are creating enabling environment for villages along the routes. The General Manager of TRANSCO CLSG, Mohammed M. Sherif on Monday, December 24, 2018 visited the CLSG project Lot # 1 transmission line corridor in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, where EPC contractors, Elecnor Effiage is constructing several transmission towers.
Along the route, it was observed that some of the villages that dot the rural landscape that were extremely isolated as no roads connected them to the main highway to the port city of Buchanan, Grand Bassa County are now connected by the access roads. These villages were not accessible by car, so residents had to walk through the bushes, sometimes very long distances, to go to school or see a doctor in the port city. Building this link has given the residents access to the outside world.
The villagers said they felt abandoned and ignored, but with the construction of the roads in these rough terrains by the EPC contractors, who are implementing the CLSG project in the county, they are elated. Now they can have access to other communities including schools and health centers by means of motorcars or bikes.
From the first village called Peter Hill Town, where the access road begins to the second nearby villages, namely Daniel Dumba town and Saweh Town, residents are grateful for the opening of the roads. According to them, they wanted help in building a road for a long time.
