Vice-President commissions inner roads in Oforikrom Municipality
Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has commissioned 13kilometers inner roads infrastructure in the Oforikrom Municipality of Ashanti region.
The projects form part of 100km Greater Kumasi Inner Roads under a Sino Hydro funding facility, started in 2019.
Residents of Oforikrom municipality, though happy with the face-lift of some of their roads, want the government to complete other unmotorable ones.
Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, says Greater Kumasi has seen massive face-lift in terms of inner roads.
According to him, records from Ghana Highways Authority indicate 1,180km of roads have been completed in Ashanti since 2017.
He indicated that the government is starting the Boankra Inland Port project this month and will also commission Kumasi International Airport in September.
The 100km Greater Kumasi Inner road infrastructure project was awarded to construction firm, ‘Contracta’ in 2019 and completed this year.
The scope of work includes construction of road side drains, provision of culverts, earthworks, provision of base and sub-base, double surface dressing and road line marking.
Other beneficiary communities include Suame, Kwadaso, Bantama and Manhyia.
