The 29-kilometre Kasoa-Obom-Amasaman road in the Ga West District of the Greater Accra Region is expected to be fully opened to traffic by the end of the year.

Alhassan Mohammed, a foreman of the construction company, Queiroz Galvao, told the Ghanaian Times during a visit to the construction site on Tuesday.

The GH¢12.4 million project, which was awarded to the Brazilian firm formed part of the 21 road projects in the area which were initiated by the John Mahama  administration to provide convenient alternatives for motorists travelling from Kasoa and its environs to the Amasaman area.

It was also to facilitate the transportation of people, goods and services and open up the area for development.

The task of the contractor included the construction of the concrete beams for the new bridge over the Densu River, completion of culverts of different sizes and construction of gutters to ensure the free flow of water.

During the visit, the Ghanaian Times found that, 20 streetlights had been installed along the newly constructed bridge to provide light during the night and help beef up security at the area and the road was also tarred.

In an interview with some commuters on the Ashalaja, Amasaman route,  one of them, David Asante, a driver, lauded the project, saying it would help enhance economic activities.

According to him, roads were important and provide access to employment, social, health and education services.

The assembly member for Ashalaja, Rafick Attuquaye Abdul Malik, said the assembly was pleased with the level of work done and pledged the continuous support of his office for the project.

He mentioned that the construction of the road would play an important role in the community and also promote agricultural development.
