The GH2.9 million project, which is expected to be completed by the end of September is being constructed by Bethel Construction Limited.

At a durbar on Friday to officially start the project, the Municipal Engineer, Mr. Daniel Sowah explained that the project involved two roads, which are the Tetegu road and the Tetegu Bypass road.

He said the Tetegu road is 1km from Tetegu junction on the main Kasoa-Mallam junction road into the Tetegu township and the Tetegu Bypass is 1.2km inside Tetegu township.

The Municipal Engineer said all the roads would be bitumen and double-seal and reiterated their commitment to ensure value for money and also the contractor work to schedule.

Mr. Sowah urged those who had built illegal structures along the roads to remove them before the assembly demolishes them for smooth execution of the project.

He also urged residents not to steal the contractor’s materials but be vigilant to protect the materials.

Mr. Jerry Akwei Thompson, MCE for Ga South Municipal Assembly urged the residents to exercise patience and not to fight the contractor so that he could work quickly within schedule.

He said the roads which were once graded were now being constructed properly and asked residents to pay promptly their property rates and levies to accelerate the developmental projects of the assembly.

He disclosed that most of the lobbies for the road construction were facilitated by Ms. Obuobia Darko-Opoku, an aspiring NDC parliamentary candidate for the Weija-Gbawe constituency.

Ms. Darko-Opoku urged residents to always support the assembly in its work and not to politicise basic amenities and developmental projects by the assembly.

She said the road was a major problem confronting residents and said the construction was a big relief to residents.

The Assemblywoman for the area, Ms. Beatrice Afua Asantewaa Agyekum thanked the assembly for the road project and urged drivers not to speed on the road when it is completed.

Madam Tina Mensah, the NPP aspiring parliamentary candidate for Weija-Gbawe pledged support to the project and reiterated her commitment to ensure the project was completed within schedule.
