Repairing damaged roads for unhindered access to remote areas in SouthSudan is a priority for UNMISS.
Repairing damaged roads for unhindered access to remote areas in SouthSudan where local communities are often in need of protection and humanitarian aid is a priority for UNMISS. The mission’s peacekeepers from China based in the mission’s Aweil Field Office in Northern Bahr-el-Ghazal are constructing and paving a 150-kilometer stretch between Aweil and Wau. A public transport hub and a supply route frequented by commercial traders and UNMISS, as the mission transports necessary and often life-saving equipment from Juba to its field outpost in Aweil, this road is economically significant. Once completed, the road is expected be a much-needed addition to infrastructure in the country and boost cross-border trade with Sudan
