Giving reasons for not meeting their deadline, Gento Group Director, Mohamed Gento Kamara told this Medium that just after they made the declaration to complete the tarring of that road by April ending, the government asked them to construct a foot bridge along New England Ville junction which he said stalled their timetable for two weeks as they need to draw the plan for that foot bridge and also start the construction.

He explained that the foot bridge foundation is 16 feet deep.

“We started it from the foundation and that reversed us for two weeks,” he said.

He described the move by the government as wise one, if one considers the number of pedestrians that are using that route on a daily basis.

Gento Group was first name Fimet Beton-Villa SL Ltd due to the inclusion of other companies.

Pedestrians and motorists in Freetown expressed concern over the very slow pace at which the Jomo Kenyatta, Hill Cot and Hill Station Roads are being reconstructed by GENTO GROUP Construction Company. But the Director said they are within the time frame.

He cited the Hill Station road which he said they will soon finish the tarring and other side works.

“The deadline for the Hill Station road is November this year but now we are almost at the end of that work.”

GENTO GROUP was awarded another contract to construct the Waterloo township roads a work which has been welcomed by residents of that community.

 

The Group has given another deadline to complete the tarring of the Jomo Kenyatta/King Harman Road junctions by the end of May.
