Bamenda City Council: Road Maintenance Works imminent

Current state of the Bamenda City roads 

City councillors of the Bamenda City Board have voted a deliberation to initiate the rehabilitation works on the urban road network of Bamenda.

The deliberation was voted as the Bamenda City Council converge for its midterm evaluation Thursday September 1, 2022.

400 million francs is needed to make the road passable around Bamenda according to studies. This will see the greater portion of the broken tar removed and water channeled out of the road according to a declaration of the Bamenda City Mayor, Paul Achombong.

Of the 400 million, 90 million will be provided by the Ministry of transport while the Bamenda City Council will provide the rest.

Temporal measures from individuals 

Councillors drawn from the 3 subdivisional councils unanimously voted the deliberation which will serve as a welcome relief to the people of Bamenda.

The Bamenda Sonac street, Ayaba Street, Metta Quarters, Amour Mezam have been at a consistent state of dilapidation with cars moving from one end of the road to another just to find a passable path.

This has forced commuters to spend quite some time on the road before arriving their destinations. Car owners are forced to be in garages every now and then according to views published by The Observer two weeks ago.

While the councillors applaud, the common man awaits the reconstruction of the entire urban road network of Bamenda. According to the city Mayor's intervention, no contractor has been contracted to do the urban road network of Bamenda.

For now, BUNS is doing the Babadjou-Welcome to Bamenda stretch, while BOFAS will construct the Welcome to Bamenda- Ecole de Champions stretch. No word has been said of who will do the rest of the urban road.

As at now, Plans are underway to get the works begin as fast as possible as runoff virtually runs on the road and other temporal measures taken by the Bamenda II Council and other individuals have not outlived a week.
