The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, on Friday, March 25, 2022, commissioned 65km of feeder roads completed in the Ashanti Region.
The roads form part of the first phase of the Sinohydro project.
The roads include the Mpsatia-Abompe – 10km, the Kwanfin – Apenemade – 14.2 km, the Adobewora – Ntobroso – 4km, the Nyinahin Town Roads – 7.6km, the Nyinahin – Sreso – 14.5km, and the Tanodumase – Anansu – 14.2km.
He also cut sod for the beginning of construction works on 145 different roads for a total of 100km of urban roads across six Metropolitan areas and Municipalities under the Kumasi City Inner Roads project, part of the Sinohydro Master Project Support Agreement (MPSA).
Districts to benefit from this project, to be completed in 30 months, include Asokwa, Kwadaso, Oforikrom, New Tafo, Suame, Mampong, and Effiduase. Manhyia, Bantama, Nhyiaeso and Subin, all sub–metros within the Kumasi Metro, would also benefit from this project.
According to him, this project is different from the ongoing construction works, under the Rehabilitation and Auxiliary Infrastructure of Kumasi Inner Ring Road and Adjacent Streets -Phase 1, for which I cut sod in 2019 being done in some areas in Kumasi under the auspices of Contracta (construction firm) which is 96% complete.
