Ablekuma West Constituency Roads

The Minister of Roads and Highways, Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Atta, has toured the Ablekuma West Constituency to inspect the deplorable state of roads and open drains together with the Minister of Communications, Hon. Ursula Owusu Ekuful, who is the Member of Parliament for the area, to as a matter of urgency, address the situation.

The poor state of the roads and open drains and as well as the choked gutters, poses great danger to residence who finds it difficult to live and move around easily.

The situation according to some residents, is causing a serious heartbreak for them. Especially the vehicle owners who are always visiting the mechanics shops amid consistent damages and breakdown of parts of their vehicles.

The sector minister, Hon. Kwasi Amoako-Atta who was touched by the situation in the constituency has therefore, earmarked four major roads linking the breadth and length of the town to be treated as emergency which requires quick maintenance and construction to ease movement.

According to him, he will give approval for the construction of the four major roads in the constituency after touring the 3.5 kilometer Western Link to Dansoman SSNIT, the Tunga road, Zodiac, Sahara on Monday 9thOctober for construction to begin.

Adding that, similar exercises will go on in other parts of the constituency to gradually repair and construct new roads for easy commuting and flow of rain water that usually bring about flooding in some parts of the town.

Hon. Amoako-Atta also ordered the maintenance of the open drains and the construction of new bridges and slabs to allow passage of rain water in a period of one week.

He therefore tasked the Director of Urban Roads at the Ministry, to present to him estimates of the projects that have been listed for reconstruction and repair by Friday 6th October to allow work to begin.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Constituency, Mrs. Ursula Owusu said several key parts of the constituency have been completely cut off because of the poor nature of the roads.

She expressed her gratitude to the minister for ordering for some of the bad roads and drains to be treated as a matter of urgency.

“There are other equally important roads in the constituency but I am happy it has started and I am confident this is just the beginning like the Minister have indicated and that progressively others will be worked on so that hopefully by the end of the four year term we would have seen much improvement in the roads in the constituency,” she said.

According to her, when these roads and drains are tackled, it will be a great relief to the residence who finds it difficult to walk and drive with ease in the constituency.
