Ho, Oct. 22, GNA
– Workers of China Railway No. 5 Engineering Ghana Limited Monday resumed work
on the Sokode-Ho dual carriage project.

The10.5 kilometre
project, which started around October 2016 stalled in May last year, due to
accumulated debt, making the stretch unmotorable with agitations from youth
groups and some chiefs in Ho.

Dr. Archibald Yao
Letsa, Volta Regional Minister who visited the site with journalists said the
resumption of work followed the intervention of President Nana Addo Dankwa
Akufo-Addo and agreements reached between government and the company.

“This work is of major
concern to us all. It is not a good spectacle. We all face many
inconveniencies, so we thank God they are back to work,” he stated.

Dr. Letsa assured of
government’s commitment to the completion of all road projects, including the
Eastern corridor and said the Minister of Roads and Highways, Mr Kwesi Amoako
Atta, would tour the project area and address issues concerning roads in the
Region.

The project, estimated
at GHC98 million is expected to manage traffic in Ho and give a face-lift to
the Regional capital.

Meanwhile, a second
dual carriage, known as the Ho bypass is also suffering break in work schedule
due to “funding issues,” the Regional Minister told GNA.
