The Greater Accra Regional Director of Feeder Roads, Joseph Miazer, has assured the people of Ada that roads in the area would soon be rehabilitated to alleviate their transportation difficulties.
Mr. Miazer gave the assurance when he led a fact-finding team of technocrats from the Department of Feeder Roads to inspect road networks in the Ada West District.
The inspection tour was as a result of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s promise to the chiefs and people of Ada to repair the deplorable roads when he participated in this year’s Asafotufiami Festival.
It would not be too long when road contractors would be seen on site after the completion of procurement processes and project requirements, Mr Miazer said.
The Ada West District Chief Executive, Adjoteye Akrofi, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, said the road networks within the District were in deplorable state making vehicular and human movement very difficult.
He said he had the privilege to brief the President during his visit to Ada of the challenges of the people, especially the appalling nature of the roads.
“The Ada West District has 180 kilometres stretch of road but only 14 kilometres has been asphalted while 10 kilometres has bitumen surface. The remaining 156 kilometres is in a deplorable state and unsafe for road users,” he said.
He said this was affecting economic activities of the people as they found it difficult to transport salt and food stuff and also made accessibility to tourists’ sites very challenging.
