The project involves upgrading from gravel to bitumen standard Fish Town –Harper Road: Phase 1: Harper – Karloken section (50km) at an estimated cost of UA43.04 million. The Project is expected to improve accessibility of the communities in the project’s zone of influence to economic centres and social services. The road will also serve international traffic within ECOWAS/Mano River Union Region (Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone), and will thus contribute to regional integration. The Project components include: (i) Paving Harper City - Karloken Road (50km), ESMP and Supervision of Works; (ii) Project Management (Implementation Support, Financial/Technical/Road Safety Audits, Monitoring and Evaluation): and (iii) Complementary Components: Compensation of PAPs, Capacity Building, and Awareness Campaigns - HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Gender Sensitization and Road Safety Awareness Campaigns.
The sector goal of the Project is thus to support Liberia’s economic growth through development of transport infrastructure that contributes to its post-conflict Agenda (AfT). The objective of the Project is to provide efficient road transport access to South East Counties of Liberia and by extension to neighbouring ECOWAS / Mano River Union Member States (Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea and Sierra Leone).
The beneficiaries include the local communities within the road catchment area, as the road is expected to provide access to socio-economic centres (markets, schools, and health centres), which should in turn boost the local economy, and contribute to poverty reduction.
