Chinese peacekeeping engineer detachment to Liberia repairs road to PTP refugee camp

Since the beginning of the full-scale construction in the dry season, the 12th Chinese peacekeeping engineer detachment to the Republic of Liberia has been working with tremendous efforts in the frontline of the construction site and successively accomplished the maintenance of two roads totaling almost 180 kilometers in length. Recently, the officers and men took on the maintenance of the road to the refugee camp without any time for rest.

There is a 20-odd-meter-wide stream on the road to the PTP refugee camp. Not long ago, international organizations built a new cement bridge over this stream. Nevertheless, due to the harsh road conditions on the two ends of the bridge, the bridge could not open to traffic. At the request of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the Chinese peacekeeping engineer detachment dispatched engineering machines to conduct an all-round repair to the road section. The focus of the task is to make the bridge available to traffic.

It is expected that the Chinese peacekeeping engineer detachment will accomplish the task in three days.
