Public Works Minister Gyude Moore last week inspected on-going work at the Caldwell Bridge. The new bridge which will consist of two lanes when constructed is expected to be completed August 2015 despite the outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus which interrupted works activities at the bridge.
During the inspection, Min. Moore accessed the level and quality of works ongoing by the Chinese owned company CHICO. He assured the Contractor Ministry of Public Works full commitment to address all constraints tending to delay timely implementation of the project and cautioned the contractor against quick fixing and sluggish work. “As an international company, your reputation is on the line”, Minister Moore warns Chinese Company CHICO. He added that under his watch as minister responsible for infrastructure, non-performing construction companies, irrespective of their status, will find it difficult if not impossible to get future contracts in Liberia.
Minister Moore further signaled that the monitoring consultant performs duty without fear and favor ensuring that the project is implemented in line with approved design and specifications. He also stressed that both the contractor and monitoring consultant work collectively on key project related issues with the objective that quality remains a propriety and at the same time maintaining the project completion date.
