Construction work has begun on the Jasikan-Hohoe road following reports by Adom FM’s ‘My Road My Vote’ team that visited the area.

Prior to the visit, the 227.5km stretch was in a deplorable state due to the absence of drainage system in the area.

The Eastern Corridor road, which was described by some residents of the area and its environs as a death trap, is being worked on after the report.
