Lifeline For K’si Bad Roads

A bad road in Kumasi

GOVERNMENT has taken a firm
decision to quickly fix all deplorable road networks in Kumasi—the Ashanti Regional capital.

In
view of that, private contractors who have been awarded road contracts in the city but left site have been ordered to return and
resume work.

Alhaji
Alidu Seidu, the Asokore Mampong Municipal Chief Executive, who made the
disclosure, said the Kumasi roads would be fixed soon.

“Latest
by next week, all the contractors that government has contracted to work on the
poor roads in Kumasi have been told to return to site. This decision was taken
during a crunch meeting in Kumasi on Wednesday, which I was present,” Alidu
Seidu stated on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM
yesterday.

He,
therefore, appealed to residents of the city to exercise maximum restraint,
assuring them that all the bad roads would be tackled soon.

Virtually,
all Kumasi roads had deteriorated by the time the New Patriotic Party (NPP)
government assumed the mantle of leadership in January 2017.

The
government awarded most of the roads to contractors to fix them but the
contractors left site after few months and abandoned the roads.

Alidu
Seidu stated that government was aware of the problems that Kumasi residents
were facing due to the deplorable roads.

“The
NPP government is a listening government, for which reason it has decided to
get the roads fixed completely to help ease movement in the city,” he added.
