Mr. Kamara noted that Phase II will target all major roads as well smaller streets in the country and appealed to the community people for their patience.

  • Dear Sirs,

    I note with interest recent articles about the ongoing pothole problem in Sierra Leone.

    We own a technologically-advanced road repair system which we introduced to several Ministers
    and the senior staff of the Sierra Leone Road Authority in May 2012. This cold-mix system is able to repair
    an average-size pothole in only 10 minutes (even in monsoon rains), can be driven over immediately
    and does not require roads to be closed. it is currently proven in use in over 20 countries worldwide,
    is accredited by major testing organisations and guaranteed for at least 5 years.

    Unfortunately, although this word-beating technology is available and we have repeatedly asked the SLRA
    to allow us to provide a turnkey “Supply and Apply” service throughout the country, our proposals await a

    Our local representative continues to seek an answer as to why our products and services are not being
    considered, although we hope, one day, to commence manufacturing this remarkable product in Sierra
    Leone where it is guaranteed to solve the pothole problem and, at the same time, employ a large
    number of local people.

    Regards and kind wishes.

    Yours sincerely,
    Philip D. Deighton,
    Executive Chairman,
    Quikfix Holdings Limited.
