On Behalf of Dwanwura, Adu Kwadwo Joseph, thanked the contractors for their good work and encouraged them to continue with the pace they have started.

“We can all attest to the good works that you are doing, we learnt the you are supposed to finish this project within two years but we have seen that you guys are really doing a good work and for that we are grateful.

“The construction of this particular road is very dear to us, we have been writing to successive governments to help construct the road for us but it is under this government that our dreams are being fulfilled, so Nana says he thank His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, the Vice President, Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumai, the Middle Belt C.E.O,  Hon. Joseph Kumah-Mackay and the DCE.

The Construction Manager (CM) of Resources Access Limited (RAL), the company in charge of the road construction, Engineer Kelly highlighted the progress made and explained the nature of the road being worked on.

“This shows how important the road is to you and your people, we promise to deliver a good job to improve the life of the people of Sene west and beyond.

“We all know the project started a few month ago, it is a two year project and out of that we have done almost 8.5km, we have done up to formation and formation means we are ready to receive the sub-base so typically the road is almost getting to form and we want to bring the 8.5km to sub-base level.

“From Atebubu to the district capital where the road was very bad, it’s about 34km and out of that we have done 8.5km in less than a month, we are committed to making sure that this road is brought to the state of the art that can be compared to any road in Ghana or in the world.” He told the media.

Engineer Kelly, pleaded with Nananom and the relevant stakeholders, to advice drivers using the stretch to reduce their speed when approaching the construction zone

“We have two requests to His Royal Majesty and the MCE, the rate at which your vehicles speed here is too much so we will be glad if you could tell them that when they are approaching the construction zone, they should slow down.” Engineer Kelly appealed.
