BANGUI (LNC) – At the crossroads of Benz-Vï street, where repair operations are completed, as well at the roundabout in the Sica 1 district, cracks were sealed; nonetheless, no culverts and drainage ditches to prevent flood damage.
Bitter assessment of a retired public works engineer:
“It is a useless clogging. In a tropical country like ours, We got to dig not less than one metre deep, to next strengthen the ground with layers of stones, gravel, and sand; for at the end, to tarmac over it. That is the way to last the roads. Otherwise, with flooding, repairs will not stand up to much. I remember very vividly in the 60-70’s building sites of the avenues Boganda and Benz-VÏ, with drainage ditches and many more included. I was part of them. That was much more than those slipshod works.”
