On Friday, September 15, 207, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) acting through the Liberia Community Infrastructure Program (LCIP) delivered to the Government of Liberia Ministry of Public Works the third installment of heavy duty road maintenance and equipment including six (6) 12 cubic yard dump trucks and one 40-ton low bed trailer and tractor head valued at approximately $680,000. This delivery is part of a larger package of equipment support provided through LCIP to the MPW with a total value of over USD $2.0 million.
Other USAID-funded equipment delivered earlier this year included three (3) Caterpillar brand motor graders, two (2) Caterpillar wheel loaders, one (1) Caterpillar backhoe and one (1) Caterpillar wheel compactor. The equipment will assist the Ministry of Public Works to undertake essential road maintenance and repair activities throughout Liberia.
The repair and upgrading of Liberia’s road network is crucial for the success of the Government of Liberia’s ongoing efforts to make the transition from post-conflict state to long term growth and development partner. This investment in heavy duty equipment and trucks is a reflection of the strong partnership between the US Government and the Government of Liberia to improve the lives and living standards of Liberians throughout the country.
