The upgrading of the first phase of the Easter Corridor Roads from Asikuma Junction to have is progressing steadily. The 45-km stretch which is a contract value of GH¢105,777,580.31, was awarded in October last year, and contractors moved to site in December the same year.
The Volta Regional Minister, Mr. Henry Ford Kamel, last Friday visited the site to assess the progress of work.
He said after the inspection that he was satisfied with the quality of work done so far. He said the project was an important one since when completed, the road would provide a shorter access to the Tema port and improved a shorter access to the Tema port and improve integration between Volta Region, Ghana and Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger.
He noted that travelling time to the north would also be reduced, thereby enhancing economic activities in the region. The resident engineer, Mr. Kweku Adentwi-Anguah, in an interview, noted that the company had taken time to do all the necessary testing to make the road durable.
