Asphalting the road of saint Nouhra church.
Upon the request of Greek orthodox parish council, The ministry of public work and transportation asphalted the road of saint Nouhra church.
As a preliminary sustainable solution, the municipality signed a contract with a specialized company to collect the solid municipal waste and transfer it out of Koura district.
This topic is not part of the authority of the municipal council. Nevertheless, we followed up the implementation of the all the steps of the project. Our goal is to solve the deep-rooted problem of the water in Kafaraka in a sustained manner.
The project has been satisfactorily completed but we are still working to improve the losses of pressure in some sections of the village.
The municipality conducted a water survey study for Kafaraka. The aim is to identify the location of the best available reserve of underground water in the village.
The roads were in very bad condition since long time. The reasons are related to:
- The executing of new projects
- The lack of coordination between the contractors
- Absence of maintenance since long ago
The Main road Kafaraka – Basrama is according to the Lebanese law under the responsibility of the Ministry of Public Works. The mayor sent a letter in July 2016 to His Excellency the Minister of Public Works wishing to pave the road. Unfortunately no action was implemented.
With the new government, the municipality reiterated its request to His Excellency the Minister of Public Works. The municipal council is still waiting for the final decision of His Excellency.
At the beginning of the spring 2017, the Municipal Council decided to repair and maintain the road at its expense in order to improve the situation to an acceptable level.
The project was implemented in May, noting that the current situation still not meeting our standard. The Municipal Council is working hard to continuously improve the condition.
The secondary Roads
The condition, after the maintenance that was done in May 2017, is slightly improved. We are planning to continuously improve the road condition after completing the executing of the waste water project.
