Rehabilitation involves installation of culverts and leveling potholes.

The state minister for physical infrastructure, Agok Manyiel said work on the road linking greater Bhar El Ghzal region to Central Equatoria state was agreed upon during the sixth governor’s forum in Rumbek.

“During the sixth governors meeting in Rumbek, Yirol was given 100 miles of road to maintain starting from Yirol to inside Terekeka state. Now we have completed 83 miles and about 17 miles is remaining and will be completed within seven days to come,” said Agok.

About 300 heavy trucks loaded with several items are reportedly stranded between Kalthok and Tombek due to terrible road connection linking the two areas to Terekeka.

Meanwhile, work on the western part of Yirol to Rumbek reportedly started at a slow pace, with several traders complaining about swamps and potholes, which make it inaccessible by big trucks.

Last month, The governor of South Sudan’s Tonj state, Akec Tong Aleu started the construction of the 110 kilometers roads which links Gok and Wau town.

Inaccessible roads hinder the delivery of basic goods and services to the people of Greater Bhar El Ghazal region and surrounding places of the disputed Abyei area.
