The committee commenced the inspection of road projects across the country last week Friday with the objective to ascertain the quality of work and the pace at which construction work is carried out by the various contractors across the country.
The committee made its first call in the Moyamba and Njala township road project on Friday and continued on Saturday and Sunday with the inspection of Pujehun and Kenema township roads where T-Mark Construction Company operates.
The Chairman, Hon. Kombor Kamara said as members of the oversight committee, their mandate is, among other things, to inspect, indentify faults and challenges and then make the necessary recommendations, noting that despite some minor challenges observed in Moyamba, his committee was so far pleased with the level of work in the township.
He however re-echoed the displeasure among some residents in Moyamaba regarding the slow pace at which construction is being carried out. They appealed to government to do all it takes to ensure the speedy completion of the Moyamba township roads.
On his part, the Managing Director of T. Mark Construction Company, Abiodun Oyebola attributed the delay mainly to the difficulty in acquiring latterite and granite stones needed for the work, adding that his company was also having difficulties in making use of the quarry site allocated to them in Bo district.
Mr. Oyebola said residents in Moyamba have not been cooperative as they continue to demand compensations from the company for the use of their latterite. “It is part of our mandate to provide these materials,” he disclosed and called on the Moyamba to cooperate with his company and get the job done as soon as possible.
