Repair works begin on Ho-Accra Highway following JoyNews report

The Ghana Highways Authority has begun repair works on the damaged section of the Ho-Accra Highway in the Volta Region. 

The Authority contracted Zylodor Construction Limited to construct a 12 meters pipe culvert, after an underground bridge between the Kponvi barrier-Tsito section of the highway caved in on Sunday. 

This follows a JoyNews report on the damaged section on Monday, which could cause fatal accidents on the stretch if left unattended. 

The company on Tuesday evening excavated the damaged section and transported a trip of chippings and sand to the site, leaving the other lane for traffic use. 

When JoyNews visited the site on Wednesday morning at about 9 am, no construction worker was seen at the site. 

However, the Foreman of Zylodor Construction Limited, Enoch Opoku, in a telephone interview indicated that ”they are mobilizing to transport concrete mixer, wheelbarrow, and other logistics to the site”.

He is hopeful work will be completed on the pipe culvert in 7 days. 

The damaged Volvo cargo has also been towed some 100 meters away from the damaged section.
