The ongoing construction of the roads has affected the structures of many residents who are yet to be paid for their landed properties by Government.

Some of the bridges, culverts and drainages under construction have become death traps for residents of Tengbeh Town, Signal Hill and Hill Cut Road communities.

According to reports, some affected residents have boldly taken up the issue with key stakeholders in the road sector though their concerns were treated with levity. One of the complainants was a police officer, ASP Abu Bakarr Kargbo of the Sierra Leone Police Headquarters, who resides at Cole Drive off Tengbeh Town, Freetown.

The police officer is one of the affected residents with an unfinished drainage sharply pointing at his house where the drainage empties its water whenever it rains.

Seven different phases of the outlet drainages, poor road conditions and soil destruction close to the Two Storey-Building foundation of a Police Officer.

According to reports, the foundation of ASP Abu Bakarr Kargbo’s two-storey is under serious threat due to the running water that passes through the unfinished drainage and rocks the foundation whenever it rains.

The police officer is said to have officially reported the matter to the Country Manager of the Chinese construction company, Executive Director of Sierra Leone Roads Authority (SLRA), Director of Disaster Management Department at the Office of National Security (ONS), Minister of Works, Housing and Infrastructure and the Permanent Secretary, Member of Parliament for Constituency 106 and the Parliamentary Committee for Roads, but no action has taken to salvage his house.
