It can be record that during the middle of the rainy season the two communities are normally cut off due to immerse rain, thus creating hardship for residents of the area.

Madam Wreh said, she felt troubled firstly seeing the bridge and the risk associated in crossing on a monkey bridge which was in a very deplorable condition.

‘’Because of the condition of the bridge, I was so troubled, even though I don’t live in this community, but I could not stop thinking about what to do due to what I saw in 2017,’’ she averred.

The Margibi County district #3 lawmaker has also promised to install two streets lights to both ends of the bridge to ensure safety and security.

She also used the dedication ceremony to publicly recognized, certificated, and honored few individuals who she believed were very instrumental during the construction of the footpath bridge.

In separate remarks, community residents lauded the office of madam Wreh for the construction of the bridge describing it as timely.

The residents voice out their happiness over the successful completion of the project, hoping that the project will go a long way in serving them.
