PAVI FORT Undertakes Fastest Township Road Completion
Pavi Fort Road Construction Company has once more demonstrated commitment and professionalism with regards road construction within the Kabala Township.
Recently, the Deputy Minister of Works and Public Assets, Madam Melrose Kargbo, took a team of relevant stakeholders on a conducted tour to Kabala. Among the team were some officials of the Sierra Leone Roads Authority, Civil Society representatives, the contractor, consultant and the Press. The move was geared towards inspecting ongoing road works in the township.
It was made clear that Kabala has been one of the most neglected towns in terms of road infrastructure but with Government’s recent intervention, the township can now boast of a 23Km road network which has enhanced connectivity within the communities.
The works contract for 18Km of these roads was awarded to Pavi Fort, a renowned local company owned by one of Sierra Leone’s youngest entrepreneurs, Alimu Barrie who has called on Sierra Leoneans to follow his footsteps.
Engineer Vandy French is the Director of Operations at the Sierra Leone Roads Authority. He said that the contractor of Pavi Fort has done substantial works which warrants the client, SLRA, to commence the Defect Liability Period that will last for 12 months.
He again noted that Pavi Fort has executed the project in record time and described it as the fastest project in the construction of Township roads in the country.
Speaking on behalf of Road for Development, a civil society consortium, Charles Mambo, lauded Pavi Fort for a work well done. He appealed to the Government not to relent in the Local Content Policy as Pavi Fort has stood the test of time in the road industry.
Deputy Minister of Works and Public Assets, Melrose Kargbo, expressed Government’s commitment within the “New Direction” to the improvement of the road sector nationwide. The inspection, in this vein, was to her a manifestation of the commitment of the government. She also appealed to all stakeholders and road users to make good use of these roads.
