Peduase road works to be completed by December – Minister

  |   Ghana News

The Ministry of Roads and Highways expects the slope repairs and protection work on the Peduase Lodge-Ayi Mensah road to be completed by December 2017. The south-bound lane of the Peduase Lodge-Ayi Mensah road was closed in June 2016 but over a year later, work on the road is yet to be completed.

The sector Minister, Kwesi Amoako-Attah, noted that the contractor working on the road was not given any money for the work at the time. The contractor tasked to work on the project is expected to stabilize the slope and halt the fall of rocks, which now pose a danger to the traveling public, particular vehicles on the Aburi-Accra section of the road.

“The government at that time did not pay the contractor a pesewa… we came and paid the first tranche to him that made him do what he has done,” Mr. Amoako-Attah said. Work on the project thus had to stall, the Minister said, adding that circumstances compelled the Ministry to grant an another extension to the contractor.
