A major bridge connecting over 70 towns in Grand Bassa including Nimba and Bong Counties in District #3 is currently posing serious danger for commuters.
The Blehzee Bridge lies miles from the town of Wayzohn in District Three, Grand Bassa.
A number of commuters from different towns and villages struggle to transport their goods and services to Buchanan and other parts of Liberia.
The deplorable state of the bridge has caused a total embarrassment to business men and women who travel by road to transport their goods and services.
At present, vehicles cannot access the road, except for motorcyclists who have to put their lives in danger to cross their bikes.
Steven Toe, a resident of Desoe town to our reporter, “ I am really disappointed because I just purchased over 100 branches of plantains, 8 bags of Cassava and other food items but I am unable to take them to the market “.
He furthered “ how will I take these items to the market, motorcycle can’t even help me out of this situation.“
Mary Kardor, another commuter said “ I am in tears because I left my children in Buchanan to get goods to sell and feed them but see what this bridge problem has caused me “.
“I call on the government of Liberia to act quickly because some of us depend on this road to provide for our children and send them to school.”
In a telephone conversation with the District Lawmaker Vincent Willie told FrontPage that he’s communicating with partners and the National Government to ensure that the bridge gets rebuilt.
Willie mentioned “ I have managed to work on the Bassa-Goi road which is the only route now accessible for vehicles though it is far but they can manage while we’re engaging our partners.“
He furthered “that road is very major, but it’s not a project for a single lawmaker and so we are engaging and some of our partners have agreed to work on the bridge after the rainy season.“
The district legislator encouraged citizens to be patient, adding that the bridge will be reconstructed soon.
