Pipeline Road Waterlogged

first_imgResidents of Pipeline Community in Paynesville are finding it difficult to travel in and out of the area, after the only bridge connecting their community to the rest of Paynesville was flooded over as a result of several days of heavy downpour of rain.Our reporter, who visited the area last Wednesday, reported that motorbikes and four-wheel vehicles were the only means of transport that people could make use of to commute across the flood water.The chairman of the United Christian Community, Musa Kamara, told the Daily Observer that due to the bad road condition, residents were finding it very difficult to make ends meet. “Due to the bad road, especially in the rainy season, we are doomed to face water flowing from everywhere to enter our homes,” Mr. Kamara cried.Despite the situation, residents continue to fend for themselves and move forward with their lives. Mr. Kamara has appealed to government to help restore normalcy to the area by providing a paved, all-weather road.The road, he said, connects United Christian Community, Pipeline and other nearby communities, including Whein Town and Kpeh-Kpeh Town in Lower Johnsonville, among others.In spite of the odds, residents there over the weekend broke ground for the construction of a center for the Youth Intellectual Forum.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
