The renovation of Bentiu-Mayom Road that connects Unity State to Bahr el Ghazal State will soon be ready for traffic, official said.

Unity State’s government officials including the Governor Dr. Joseph Manytuil Wejang and state senior officials and members of the organized forces in the state inspected the ongoing reconstruction of Bentiu-Mayom Road on Friday.  

The road will connect Bentiu to Bahr el Ghazal in the West, and link Sudan in the north through the Southern Kordofan region.

Speaking during the inspection, Governor Manytuil commended the constructors, and urged them to consider night shift to ensure timely execution of the project to avoid overlap during rainy season.

The aim of the visit was to accelerate the completion of the renovation project before the rainy season. 

Nevertheless, the contractors at the site had promised to complete the renovation within a week, and will be ready for traffic.

The reconstruction of two feeder roads is implemented by the Amaar Construction Company funded by World Food Program (WFP). The road is being constructed to boost business activities and enhance delivery of humanitarian assistance to IDPs across the state.

Governor Manytuil promised the people of Unity state that the road between Mayom and Unity state will be connected very soon.

“Within one week, all people who are business operators will do their work well. We shall do it as soon as possible, as your government this time around we will work for your interests across the Unity state in general,” he said.

He however said that the development has been affected by the conflict that takes us back to bad situation but hopes it is time for development across Unity state.
