Members of the Public Accounts/Enterprises Committees of the National Assembly have given the National Roads Authority (NRA) one week to go and come back after parliamentarians expressed dissatisfaction with the management report of the authority submitted before it yesterday.

At its ongoing session at the National Assembly Complex in Banjul, the speaker of the National Assembly who presided over the session, said answers provided by the NRA to 53 questions posed by parliamentarians were insufficiently dealt with, and as a result rejected.

Deputies also raised concerns ranging from roads to the sewerage system in Banjul.

The management report of the NRA, among others, highlighted the EU-funded regional roads project, Mandinaba-Soma road project, Laminkoto-Passimas road project, Trans-Gambia bridge project and Brikama-Dimbaya-Darsilami road projects.
