Swedish Liberia Feeder Road Project (SLFRP)

 

CDS was contracted by HIFAB International in 2013 to assist with the preparation of technical leaflets for the Swedish Liberia Feeder Road Project (SLFRP). The project is upgrading existing rural roads in Liberia to gravel standard to improve rural access.

Each technical leaflet describes a different aspect of the construction  and maintenance works for rural roads including design standards for horizontal and vertical alignment, performance specifications for compaction, and procedures for making and placing reinforced concrete. Through their participation in the project CDS was able to provide recommendations for improved specifications and quality control mechanisms.
