Liberia: Govt Breaks Ground for Cestos City Streets, Terms Roads Connectivity Crucial Tool to National Development Outcomes


CESTOS CITY – Since it gained county status in 1984 following years of poor infrastructures, Rivercess County is the newest beneficiary of the PAPD impaction,  vis-a-vis roads connectivity, as today, Friday,  January 27, 2023 marked the historic Groundbreaking of Cestos City Streets.

The vision to pave the entire City Center came on the heels of His Excellency President Weah’s visit to the county back in 2021 during the much-promulgated Nationwide County Tour.

Addressing cross-sections of Rivercess Citizens, Public Works Minister Ruth Coker-Collins thanked the President for making good his promise to the people of Rivercess County, noting that the move is in the best interest of the county and the country at large.

For her part, Assistant Minister for Operations Kaustella Kialain-Sarsih put the cost of the project at a little over one million dollars, and the length of the Project is 5 kilometers. The Construction Type is Alternative Sealing or Double Chip Sealing.

Also speaking, Rivercess County Senator Francis Paye extolled the Government of Liberia for the landmark road project.

He used the occasion to rally the citizens to place unity at the top of the development processes of the county, adding that it is only through unison that development is achieved.

Eighth largest in size, the County ( Rivercess) is bordered by Grand Bassa County to the West, Nimba County on the Northeast, and Sinoe County to the Southeast. The southern part of Rivercess County lies on the Atlantic Ocean.

Widely known as “The Land of Sunshine”, Rivercess County is about to shine under the Pro-Poor Roads Connectivity Mantra espoused by President Weah and his team of able lieutenants.
