The Minister for Roads and Highways, Mr. Amin Amidu Sulemana, has assured the people of Tarkwa and its surrounding communities that the unmarked portion of the Tarkwa to Apimanim road in the Western Region would soon to be marked to reduce the high rate of accidents recorded on that stretch of the road.
Mr. Sulemana said the Ministry has received a petition on the road and expressed worry
about the situationwhen he toured the Tarkwa Nsueam Municipality to inspect the road
projects being executed by the Urban Roads Department.
These include pot hole patching of the Tarkwa town roads and culvert construction.
He said though the road had not been properly handed over to the government of Ghana due to some legal challenges, the Ministry would collaborate with the Western Regional Highways Department for the road to be marked as soon as possible.
Mr Sulemana, accompanied by the Minster ofr Lands and Natural Resources, Mr. Inusah
Fuseini, inspected the Cyanide/Kwoaberdu road and the existing and virgin roads leading to the new government hospital at Bogrekrom.
The minister appealed to the urban road engineer in Tarkwa to ensure that they deliver quality work on every road project to stand the test of time.
The Municipal Chief Executive, Mrs. Christina Kobinah, commended government for the work it was doing and appealed to the Minister to give urgent attention to the Benso Essuaso road which is in a deplorable state.
