The rehabilitation of roads within Kumasi Municipalities is set to receive a massive boost in 2020. Recently the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia launched the construction and restoration of 100 kilometers of roads inside the Kumasi Municipalities that would cost over US$60m. The first stage of the project is to be carried out by Contracta Construction Company and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
The road construction projects in Ghana that are to be focused on are those within Kumasi Municipalities which includes; the Suame with 12.4km, New Tafo with 8.97km, Manhyia with 8.97km, Bantama with 13. 22km and Kwadaso with 11.49km. The remainder of the zones are Subin which would cover 13.27km, Oforikrom with 10.62km, Nhyiaeso with 10.16km and Asokwa covering 11.25km.
Officials have given assurance that there will be no stalling as funds have been made available. All street projects that had begun will be completed as the legislature has discharged funds to clear unpaid debts owed to contractors.
The Vice President also noted that Ashanti Region would by the end of 2020, have 200km of tarmacked roads considering the number of street projects presently going on in the region, which includes the face-lift of the 30km Obuasi street and the Sino Hydro street projects which would add 100km of roads to Kumasi and Mampong roads.
