Kwasi Amoako-Atta, Minister of Roads and Highways, has inspected ongoing work on the Ofankor-Nsawam Road.
On Friday, August 12, the Municipal Chief Executive for Ga West Assembly and the resident engineer joined Mr. Amoako Atta to inspect the progress of work on the road.
When completed, the project will have ten lanes, making it easier for motorists to travel from Ofankor to Nsawam.
Clement Wilkinson, MCE, complained to the minister about the impassability of the roads. He also bemoaned the associated heavy vehicular traffic that annoys motorists on the road.
During his interaction with the Roads Minister, Mr. Wilkinson allayed the minister's fears by promising that hawkers would be relocated to the designated market space provided for the contractors to complete their work smoothly.
Mr. Amoako-Atta believes that the Ofankor-Nsawam Road must be completed on time due to its economic importance.
"This road must be completed quickly because of its importance," the minister said, adding that the daily inconveniences experienced by drivers and other road users must end.
According to a statement issued earlier this year by the Ministry of Roads, the road also serves as a major arterial for communities in the Ga West Municipal Assembly, including Pokuase, Amasaman, Medie, Sarpeiman, and others.
"The strategic location of the Ofankor-Nsawam road makes it one of the most important links in Ghana's network as it serves the northern, central, western, and southern parts of the country, generating a huge band of influence on transportation for the people of Ghana," according to the statement.
Mr. Amoako-Atta also urged all authorities involved in the project to work together to ensure that the project is completed on time and without incident.
