The European Union is funding rehabilitation works on 670 kilometers of feeder and farm roads in selected districts and municipalities in the Upper West Region.

Work is formally underway, with the cutting of the sod at Kpongu in the Wa Municipality of the Upper West Region, for the 35 million Euro project.

The people here are predominantly farmers, but due to the poor nature of roads in the region, farm produce from that part of the country often get to their destination rotten.

The intervention by the European Union to rehabilitate 670 kilometers feeder and farm roads in the region is therefore welcome news to the people.

The rehabilitation works fall under the 145 million Euro EU-Ghana Agricultural Programme to develop sustainable agriculture in the Upper West Region.

The E.U’s Deputy Head of Mission in Ghana, Mr. Pieter Smidt Van Gelder said the project will open up the region for investment and also reduce the cost of transporting agricultural produce from the region.

The Programme Leader for Infrastructure at the World Bank, Mr. David Villar, said the World Bank will closely monitor the project to ensure the funds are properly used.

The Minister for Roads and Highways, Mr. Kwasi Amoako-Attah, urged contractors on the projects to use quality materials to ensure longevity.

The beneficiary districts and municipalities are Wa, Wa West, Nadowli-Kaleo and Jirapa. The rest are Lawra, Nandom, Lambussie and Daffiama-Bussie-Issa.
