Monrovia Gbarnga High Way Bridge Deplorable
One of the bridges that link Monrovia to Gbarnga between David’s And Lorpu’s Towns, Swacoco District, lower Bong County, is in a deplorable state posing a grave treat to vehicles get across it, especially at night.
According to one of the David’s Town residents, Jonathan Kpeh, the bridge got damage on Monday, July 13, 2009 at about 10:30pm when two heavily loaded goods-toting trucks crossed it.
However, he said that he did not recognize the trucks license plate but maintained that the trucks were heading from Monrovia.
The bridge was only made usable when some of the residents gathered pieces of logs and filled the damage concave portion of the bridge.
Many trucks and other vehicles getting across the bridge struggled with intense care to avoid tumbling into the river and further damage to it.
