Lofa Major Highway in Deplorable Condition

first_imgThe Voinjama, Kolahun and Foya road corridors are in very deplorable condition as the raining season reaches its peak, commuters have said.Reports from the three administrative districts speak of businesspeople, farmers encountering serious difficulties to travel on the road in Lofa County.Reports also revealed the presence of large potholes in various parts of the road.Travelers and farmers have reported that the extensive use of the road by bigger commercial trucks has contributed to the poor road condition.They said the regular seven hours travel time from Monrovia to Voinjama City now takes nearly 12 hours by commercial vehicles.“It took us nearly 12 hours from Foya to Monrovia and most of our produce got rotten due to the prolonged drive from our farm areas in Lofa County,” a farmer said.As a result, commercial drivers have begun to hike transportation fares to and from the affected areas in Lofa County, travelers said.Interviews conducted with farmers on Monday and Tuesday at the Red-light market in Paynesville exposed the need for an urgent attention to fix the affected roads in Lofa County.Businessman Moses B. Mulbah, 55, told the Daily Observer Tuesday that majority of his profit margin was used to transport his goods.“The trip cost me a lot of money because the transportation fares have gone high up to reach Monrovia,” Mulbah said.Cocoa and Coffee farmer Kollie B. Yonkedeh, 50, said too much money was spent to transport the few bags of the processed coffee and cocoa to Monrovia.“I’m now constrained to seek the sale of my produce to the nearest markets of Guinea-Conakry and Sierra Leone,” farmer Yonkedeh lamented.Peanut and bitter balls producer Kebbeh G. Karzaku, 45, said she is not happy because of the high cost of transportation.“Out of the eight bags of the peanut and bitter balls that I brought to Monrovia, five bags got rotten on the highway,” Madam Karzaku said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
