The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako, Atta has confirmed that the Ministry has sealed 53% of potholes on the Eastern corridor road between Asikuma and Peki in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region.

“The contract is being executed by Messrs G.S. International Developers (GH) Ltd with funding by the Government of Ghana (Consolidated Fund) and the physical progress is projected at 53% completion as at the end of January, 2020.”

Responding to a Parliamentary question asked by MP for the Area, Rockson-Nelson Etse Kwame Dafeamekpor, Mr. Amoako Atta said: “the contractor has suspended works since June 2017, due to delay in paying for some works done.”

All payment certificates due the contractor have been paid, he noted, adding that, except one and efforts are being made to get the contractor to resume works to patch the potholes on the binder course.

The Minister stressed: “if the contractor delays in resuming work, the Mobile Maintenance Unit (MMU) of the Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) will be asked to step in.”

Background

The Asikuma Junction Peki road (km 0 -l4) falls within the contract for the Rehabilitation of Asikuma Junction-Kpeve Road (Km 0-45) on the N2 (otherwise known as the Eastern Corridor Road) in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region.
