The project is being executed under the Industrial Basic School Project (IBSP), and financed by the World Bank at the cost of $300,000.
It involves the construction of 12 classrooms and other facilities such as an Information and Communications Technology laboratory, library, sick bay, staff common room, basket ball, table tennis and volleyball courts.
“The IBSP is an arrangement that maximises land space by developing structures vertically instead of the usual lateral structure of buildings, which occupies space and does not ensure efficient use of land,” Mr. Odamtten said.
He said the project would be completed in a six month period, and that the assembly was expected to build six of those structures in the three constituencies of Tema by the end of the year.
Mr. Odamtten said the assembly had planned to build a fence wall around all public schools within the municipality, to prevent encroachment on school lands, adding that the works department of the assembly had concluded its audit of all public school lands in Tema, to facilitate the implementation of the plan.
He expressed worry about the indiscriminate way buildings and kiosks were springing up along the streets, marring the planning and execution of projects in the municipality.
He said the assembly would undertake the redevelopment of all community markets in the municipality. From Godfred Blay Gibbah, Tema
