The rehabilitation of a twenty kilometer road section from Torit to Katire kicked off in a project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).The road was out of use for many years of the civil disturbances between the north and the south. Eastern Equatoria state Minister of Transport and Roads, Peter Karlo Otim said Torit-Katire road would provide multi-purpose services ranging from market access and linkages, farming yards and agriculture products such as dairy milk, meat and easy delivery of services to the rural communities. The project is being implemented by the U.S. based Louis Berger Group and a local contractor Rhino star Supplies. State Governor Louis Lobong Lojore expressed delight over the improved level of support Eastern Equatoria is receiving from USAID. He outlined several successes currently ongoing in the USAID and GoSS feeder road project in Torit County, which he termed as "wonderful". Mr. Lojore said the ongoing feeder road rehabilitation in Torit and Katire will boost agro-economic activities in that part of the state which once served as the bread basket of Southern Sudan.
