REHABILITATION OF 20 KM OF ROAD BETWEEN GROS MORNE AND BASSIN BLEU
(Haiti Libre) -
As part of the institutional support of the UN Mission to the Haitian authorities, 24 engineers from the Indonesian Military Engineering Contingent (INDOENGCOY), began a major repair work of 20 km of road, which is dirty, muddy and strewn with pot-holes, unfit for circulation, which links the towns of Gros Morne (Artibonite) and Bassin Bleu (Northwest). This work should be completed by mid-August 2012. The Indonesian contingent with heavy machinery, should flatten, fill, compress and crush the surface, and ensure the smooth flow of rainwater on this road of eight meters width.
"I struggled for several years to repair only two kilometers of this road, without success. Imagine my relief when I see 20 kilometers under repair, especially during this rainy season!" declared Rodner Antoine Daméus, the main Mayor of Gros-Morne. According to him, these improvements will enhance the traffic between the two departments, reduce the risk of traffic accidents, and facilitate the transport of francisques mangoes, the main production of the region [approximately 50% of mangoes exported to the U.S.].
Deployed for over a year in the Artibonite, the Indonesian Military Engineering Contingent has already rehabilitated 6 road axes in the department, including Ennery, Grande Saline, Dessalines, and St-Marc.
