The Minister for Roads and Highways Hon. Kwesi Amoako Attah on 10th June 2020 paid a working visit to Savannah region to ascertain progress of ongoing road projects.
The 71Km upgrading of Salaga – Bimbilla road was his first point of call. Mr. Benjamin Attah the resident engineer of the Messrs New Modern World Construction Ltd welcomed the team and gave an overview report on the project. According to him, the project commenced on the 29th of July 2019 and expected to be completed in 42 months (28th January 2023). The resident Enginwer said their scope of work among others include, setting out of the road alignment and ancillary works, clearing and preparation of the site, earthworks, construction of pipe culvert and reinforced concrete box culvert and others.
Mr Benjamin indicated that 45% of the work has been completed and he is convinced that the road will be ready before the stipulated date.
Hon. Amoako Attah commended the contractor for the work done so far but also cautioned them never to compromise on quality because President Akufo-Addo’s government will never pay any contractor for work that is below standard.
The Minster Attah was overwhelmed by the progress of work on the 14.85 Km township roads in Salaga after briefly stopping by.
He and his entourage drove through the Salaga – Ekumdipe – Kpandai road where Jiang XI Nonferrous Engineering & Construction company Ltd is steadily progressing with work. The said project is expected to entirely take shape by 5th August 2021.
