25 September 2012
AllAfrica.com (The New Dawn): The World Bank's Board of Executive Directors Thursday approved US$50 million to help Government of Liberia to tackle gridlock on a major road linking the capital city of Monrovia to the Guinea border.
The funds will support the Road Asset Management Project (LIBRAMP), a flagship transport activity in the region and part of the Government's road construction program.
The funds will also support the development of the Liberia Multimodal Transport Plan, a framework to provide the country direction for creating a modern, effective public transport system network for major urban areas.
"The project will support a vital segment of the Government's program to develop a modern and effective transport system in major cities," said Jamal Saghir, Director, Sustainable Development Department, Africa Region."
