As the novel virus keeps spreading across the world, lawmaker in Liberia has asked the Government not to demolish the Ria Highway.
The lawmaker representing Independent, District #2, Margibi, . Ivar Jones said it would not be timely to demolish homes of people who have been asked to stay home or spent limited hours outdoors.
He asked the Ministry of Public Works to relax ongoing demolition of properties along the Highway as the world is facing the pandemic by one month.
He said “We want to say for the record we welcome the work that is being done by the Ministry of Public works but what has caught our attention is at this time, the world is faced with a pandemic and to see our citizens’ homes being demolished is heartbreaking. So, we are appealing to Public works to please give the people small chance.”
The demolition will make way for commencement of the construction of additional two lanes. These is for the expansion and pavement of the Roberts International Airport (RIA)-ELWA junction highway.
The project is titled: “Upgrading to Dual Carriageway — ELWA-Roberts International Airport Highway,” cuts across Paynesville City in Montserrado County to Unification Town, in Margibi County.
