Portion of Ho-Adidome road remain untarred

The untarred stretch on the Ho-Adidome road.A portion of the Ho-Adidome road between Adaklu-Sikama and Adaklu-Kpetsu, which has been left untarred for more than two years is posing danger to drivers and passengers as it obstructs vehicular movement.

In recent times, there has been growing outcry from motorists, who say that the untarred road has developed potholes.

Besides, they say that the slippery nature of the terrain during the rains could easily cause vehicles to veer into a river beneath the bridge.

Among the motorists, who complained bitterly over the danger on the road is the Agbogbomefia of the Asogli State, Togbe Afede XIV.

During a visit by regional executive members of the NDC to his palace to introduce their campaign task force members to him less than a fortnight ago, Togbe Afede sought to know why that stretch was left untarred for so long by the contractor with impunity.

“All these happens because you award such contracts to your favourites who cannot do the work properly and you can also not rebuke them for their poor performance on the job,” he said.

When The Ghanaian Times visited the scene last week, there was evidence of erosion on the untarred portion.

A stitch in time saves nine, said one motorist on the road.
