The Ministry of Public Works (MoPW) in collaboration with the county administration of Grand Kru has commenced the construction of two baily bridges along the Big Shwen Grandcess road.
According to the county’s Assistant Superintendent for Development, Joe Sekpeh, the Seventy feet baily bridge is currently under construction over the Gbatue River before entering Grandcess city where the county’s referral hospital is situated.
The county development superintendent said the ongoing baily bridge projects were initiated by Senate Tempore Albert Chie and is expected to be completed within two weeks.
The appalling conditions of the Grandcess road due to the woody bridges has over the period created an embarrassment for economic growth and denied citizens road access most particularly pregnant women and baby mothers who wish to seek medical treatment.
The county development boss has reassured the citizens and residents of the county that upon completion of the baily bridges, they will bring relief to several citizens including bordering counties.
