New container yard for Monrovia

From our cabin window (see photo) we can see the daily efforts of a team of bulldozers as they scrape out a huge new container terminal in Monrovia's Freeport, which will double the current capacity. Yesterday one of the workers told me that a contract had been awarded to a private company for the port's container handling, and furthermore the yard was going to be made of concrete,which is a massive and very expensive undertaking. This is a good step forward to improving the facilities to secure the "gateway" to the Liberian economy. Olly
