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.

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.

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.
