New Pedestrian Footbridge For Kumasi
http://thechronicle.com.gh/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/212.jpg A NEW pedestrian footbridge has been constructed in the Central Business district of Adum to make movement of pedestrians easier across the Guggisberg road to the Fulla road in Kumasi.
The GH¢2,229,189.41 project which started in August 2009 was constructed by Messrs High Brians Limited and funded by the Government of Ghana as part of Asafo Market UTC-Round about interchange project.
The new footbridge which was completed in August 2013 is friendly to physically challenged and the visually impaired. The project has duly been commissioned by the Minister of Road and Highways, Alhaji Amin Amidu Sulemana, to facilitate the movement of traders crossing over from the Guggisberg road to the Fulla road without any difficulty.
Commissioning it last Friday, Alhaji Sulemana called on Ghanaians to use road infrastructure with greater care to ensure a longer lifespan of the facilities and to facilitate movement of goods and services.
He called for a crusade against indiscipline on our roads noting that that the high spate of indiscipline in the usage of roads causes accidents.
The Minister indicated that the Government will soon decongest the roads in Kumasi and ease growing traffic in the Garden City.
According to him, a ring road would be constructed from Ejisu to Kodie in the Afigya Kwabre district to link the Offinso highway to cut down traffic in town.
The Bantamahene, Baffour Owusu Amankwatia IV who presided over the commissioning ceremony thanked Government for such a magnificent infrastructure and called on market women and traders to take good care of the project.
He cautioned traders that the project is not an extension of the market and should desist from using the facility as a vending point.
