Govt struggling to complete Eastern Corridor road project

Completion of the Eastern Corridor road project has become a burden on the government, several months after it was started.

The project stretches from Tema in the Greater Accra Region, through Akosombo, Juapong to Hohoe, Jasikan, Kadjebi, Nkwanta, Kpasa and Oti Damanko to Bimbilla, Yendi, Garu, Misiga and finally to Kulungugu, in the Upper East Region.

The situation got worse when the Adomi Bridge, which links Accra to the eastern part of the country was closed to vehicular traffic.

The Ho-Adaklu-Adidome-Sogakorfe road in the Volta Region, which serves as the alternative route to the Senchi Ferry site is still under construction since 2010.

Speaking at the grand durbar of Chiefs and people of Asogli to climax this year’s yam festival in the Volta regional capital, Ho, Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur said the road was being repackaged to be fully executed.

He added funds have already been released for the continuation of the project.

Mr. Amissah-Arthur also expressed the government’s commitment towards the completion of two abandoned projects in the regional capital – an office complex for the Centre for National Culture and a regional library, both of which have been under construction for more than ten years now.
