The Member of Parliament (MP) for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) in the Central Region has eased challenges of constituents to improve livelihoods and accelerate growth and development.
They include face-lifting of the constituency to improve deplorable roads, rehabilitate markets, construction of stalls and stores, construction and rehabilitation of bridges to connect communities, other useful infrastructure and provision of potable water.
The Kafodzidzi-Aburansa-Abrobiano road in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) Municipality of the Central Region, which has been in a deplorable state for years has been reshaped to ease the challenges of commuters on that route.
The nine and a half kilometer stretch serving as the only economic route for about 3,000 residents in 15 farming communities, was regarded as a death trap full of deep multiple potholes and gullies.
According to Mr Mills, the decision to reshape the stretch was in response to appeals by residents of the municipality to him and face-lifting the roads had always been his dream for the past five years because they were in a deplorable state, hindering economic related activities in particular.
“The area is the food basket of the whole municipality and beyond and needs to be rehabilitated to ease the stress of market folks who ply the road on daily basis, even with my four wheel drive, I still have difficulties using the roads, I hope this comes to help all of us to ease the stress of using the roads for our daily activities,” he lamented.
Mr Mills, who is also a member of the Roads and Transport Committee of Parliament disclosed that plans were underway to get a contractor to asphalt the stretch, the construction would connect the communities and open up the area for robust economic activities to positively aid growth and development.
He noted that some bridges had also been fixed due to destruction by flooding and new ones constructed to link communities cut off from other communities to check flooding including the bridges at Kissi and Aburansaamong others which were infrastructure useful to the people.
Mr Mills stated that he had provided clean water for nine communities, which had water supply problems for over 20 years, some got pipe-borne water while others were provided with boreholes to reduce waterborne diseases so as to attract investment to the constituency. -GNA
