Ganta-Sanniquellie Travel Significantly Improved After AML Funded Asphalt Pavement

In past years it took passengers hours to reach Sanniquellie due to the deployable state of the road.
Even though the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf regime ensured pavement of the road from Redlight to Ganta, the Sanniquellie segment was still difficult to reach given how deployable the stretch was.
Residents account that during the rainy season, it would take over two hours for vehicles to deliver essential goods between the two areas as bridges would be damaged or critical sections made completely impossible.
But in 2013, the Government appealed with global Steel Giant ArcelorMittal to extend pavement from Ganta city to the mining town of Yekepa, a total of 69 kilometers.
The request for this assistance was made directly to Mr. Mittal, the owner of ArcelorMittal who would agree to commit $40 million to pave the road from Ganta to Yekepa.
The 40 million was a figure presented by the government after a feasibility study for the completion of the project that was agreed to be spearheaded by the government of Liberia.
Public Works Ministry would design, procure supervise and monitor the construction of the road.
Even though the project was delayed owing to Ebola, COVID, and repeated slum in the global price of iron ore, ArcelorMittal worked with the Weah administration and committed to full payment of the $40 million.
This is why today, the road has been paved up to Sanniquellie, City significantly reducing travel time from about 2 hours to 30 minutes.
In a recent interview with Nimba D9 TV, businesswomen and men in Sanniquellie hailed the construction work and praised ArcelorMittal for her commitment to developing Liberian infrastructure.
They believe the pavement has made easy transportation of goods and services between the two cities and also reduced associated.
One retailer told reporters: “The reduction in the cost of transporting goods to and from Sanniquellie is helping to stabilize prices of these very goods in Ganta and here in Sanniquellie”
He continued “Even if you don’t want to buy from us here, you go to Ganta, and you will see the same price”.
The significance of the paved road between Ganta and Yekepa cannot be overemphasized.
Local farmers in the Nimba Reserve area stand to benefit from consumables they produce given the less amount of time it now requires them to supply markets with their produce.
This is the first time for such a public infrastructure work in that area as even LAMCO in its years of iron exploitation in the Nimba Mountains did not think about the need for connecting Yekepa with paved.
