The Sierra Leone Roads Authority (SLRA) has on the 28th January, 2023 signed a work contract with the China Henan International Cooperation (CHICO).

The work contract is for the upgrading of the long awaited Kailahun-Guinea and Liberia Boarder Project (Lot one of the Kailahun-Buedu Road 25km).

The occasion was graced by stakeholders as well as the community people who were very pleased with the recent development. As this has been long anticipated, the people still do believe that it came at the right time as they have been struggling with the movement of goods and services using the said road.

The project which is expected to start full operations in few weeks away from the sign date with the life span of two years is funded by the African development bank (AfDB).
