“The Ministry of Transport and the Gambia Ferry Service are in cognizance of the fact that the ferry situation in the Kerewan- Bush Town crossing point needs to be improved and that currently there is an ongoing nationwide survey on the provincial ferries in order to make them more efficient,” he told the deputies.

On road construction in the country, Minister Sillah further explained that the initial contractual period of the 50km OIC roads project was two years and has elapsed, adding that his Ministry has successfully negotiated with the Saudi funds and they have given them another timeline to finish the project and that all hands are on deck towards the successful implementation of that.

According to the Minister, the road linking Choya to Dangkunku and beyond is not part of the 355km of roads recently launched for construction this year, but quick to add that once funding is available for the construction of rural roads, they will be considered.
