Agona Nsaba (C/R), Oct. 19, GNA – The
residents of Agona Nsaba Traditional Area have appealed to the Ministry of
Roads and Highways to re-construct the road from Winneba-Junction to Akim Oda
to enhance their economic activities.

The residents who are pre-dominantly farmers
said the road needed urgent attention to facilitate the transportation of cocoa
and food stuffs to marketing centres.

Osabarima Bishop Boapiah Afriyie III, the
Omanhene of Nsaba Traditional Area made the appeal when he joined the residents
together with Mr Dennis Armah-Frempong, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for
Agona East to fill potholes on the road to facilitate the movement of vehicles.

The National Disaster Management Organisation
staff and the workers of the Zoomlion Ghana Limited in the area also
participated in the work.

The Agona East District Assembly provided more
than six trips of gravels to undertake the work, which covered about one
kilometre.

The deplorable nature of the road had
compelled drivers to use Akim Oda – Agona Swedru through Agona Nsaba town roads,
which posed great danger to school children and the aged. 

Mr Armah-Frempong said the exercise formed
part of activities to mark the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction
and to help curtail the death traps created by the potholes on the road.

He said the government was in the process of
re-packaging and re-awarding the Winneba-Junction to Akim Oda road and that
hopefully early next year the contractor would move to site.

The DCE said the road from Agona Swedru to
Awutu Bawjiase had been awarded on contract after the Minister of Roads and
Highways, Mr Amoako Atta had undertaken an inspection.
