His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio has told the world that he is early looking for investors that would be interested in the construction of a bridge that will link Lungi to Freetown.
According to the president, it is unfortunate that Sierra Leone is the only country that is separated by sea from its national airport. He said any investor(s) willing to undertake the much needed project will be highly welcomed by his government, while emphasizing the need for the bridge to be constructed.
It can be recalled that former President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma during his reign also promised that the long-awaited Lungi Bridge will start in the first half of his second term in office.
He made this statement during the commissioning of the Government Wharf jetty, Kissy ferry Terminal and Jetty, Aberdeen Helipad, the Lungi Targrin Jetty and Helipads.
The president also said the project for the construction of a bridge linking Freetown and Lungi was ongoing and that his government was committed to it until the end. However, until the end of his 10years reign, the lots talked about project could not start.
