CLARIFICATION RE RENAMING OF WALLACE JOHNSON BRIDGE

0

Freetown City Council (FCC) acknowledges the numerous calls of concern it has received from residents of Freetown regarding the renaming of the Wallace-Johnson Bridge.

We have today been informed by State House that Wallace-Johnson Bridge has not been renamed, but that it was the ‘new bridge’, which is an extension of the Wallace-Johnson Bridge that was named by His Excellency the President today.

While FCC congratulates His Excellency President Maada Bio on the commissioning of the ‘new bridge’ as it will help to ease traffic in the Lumley, Juba environs which in turn compliments Her Worship The Mayor’s #TransformFreetown initiative, we can confirm to Freetown residents that FCC was not consulted in the ‘naming or renaming’ of part or all of the expanded bridge.

FCC is aware that the mandate to name and/or rename streets, roads and bridges in the Municipality rests with the Council.
