Construction work on GH¢149m Agyiringanor roads begin

Reconstruction work has begun on the 40-kilometre Agyiringanor Township roads in Accra to ease traffic congestion in that area.

The GH¢149 million project to be executed in two-phases is expected to be completed in 24 months.

It involved the construction of culverts and widening of critical link roads within East Legon in the Ayawaso West Municipality and ARS and Agyiringanor in the Adentan Municipality.

The project would also see the construction of  an over pass at the Block factory to divert traffic from the motorway through Agyiringanor, the Institute of Local Government, the Institute of Professional Studies, the A and C Shopping Mall and the LEKMA Hospital road which all have roads linking Tema Community 12 and Weija-Gbawe.

The Minister of Roads and Highways, Mr Kwasi Amoako-Atta who cut sod for commencement of work bemoaned the rampant abuse of road reservations which he said often delay priority government projects.

According to him the construction of private properties on road reservations must not be allowed to continue and charged both the Ayawaso West and Adentan Municipal assemblies to start the processes of demolition of those properties.

The Minister urged the two assemblies to start the demolition processes and assured that the ministry would come in when they face any difficulty.

“The Ministry is ready to support any assembly implement policy decisions that would dissuade private developers from encroaching on green belts and road reservations,” he added.

The Minister indicated that the President  has focused 2020 as an  aggressive road infrastructure development year as such would not allow unplanned developments to stand in its way adding “once you build on the road reservation that property must go and warned the physical planning officers of the assemblies to desist from issuing permits to people  who call themselves developers.

The Director of the Department of Urban Roads, Alhaji Abass Awollu said  the project when completed would create a new road transport system in the region   and urged  owners of structures in the right of way to remove them or have themselves to blame.

The Managing Director of Oswal Investment Limited, contractors executing the project, Mr Humphrey A. Williams assured that the project would be completed on schedule and urged the beneficiary communities to complement their efforts.
