President Adama Barrow has laid the foundation stone for the 20 roads that are set to be constructed in the Greater Banjul part of the country.

At a massive ceremony held in Brufut on Wednesday, the president insisted the development of “these busy roads will solve the difficulties of schoolchildren, patients, business persons and the numerous commuters who struggle daily to board the few vehicles that ply these congested areas”.

“Through such projects, access to schools, hospitals and other social amenities and services will be enhanced gradually throughout the country,” the president added.

According to President Barrow, citizens we will all remember the occasion as “another major milestone in the development process of the necessary infrastructure for the successful hosting of the OIC Summit in 2022”.

The president said elsewhere: “The occasion doubly strengthens our hopes for a better and up-to-date highway and a sustainable road network to facilitate movement and economic activities within the Greater Banjul Area and the West Coast Region (WCR).

“When completed, the project will vitally expand our urban road network to accommodate the increasing volume of road traffic, address the need for more effective road safety measures and set up an efficient drainage system within the Greater Banjul Area. It is obvious that the construction of good roads, where they are needed most, can boost commercial engagements and improve the image of urban settings.”
