KETA: Atsime residents assured of improved road network

The Atsime Community in the Keta Constituency in the Keta Municipality has been assured of measures to have their road constructed.

The Island community has been battling with poor road infrastructure over the years and residents fear the worse will happen as the rains set in with the roads still not attended to.

According to them mobility remains their greatest worry since the road becomes unmotorable during that period.

But the Member of Parliament for Keta, Hon Richard Quashigah who sympathized with them on the bad nature of the road said a lot of consultation has been done to have the road constructed.

“Discussions on the Atiavi-Glime-Atime Road has gone very far, and but for some hitches these roads would have been under construction by now. I can assure you that as soon as those hitches are resolved you would see serious construction going on these roads”, he stated.

The MP added that “but in the mean time, a major culvert to allow free flow of water from one end to the other will be constructed. This is hoped to reduce damage to the existing road when the water level rises”.

Mr. Quashigah said he has already procured about 6 reinforced concrete culvert pipes for construction of the culvert to begin “and as you can see they have started bringing them to cite. They vehicle conveying them has broken down at the moment and we are hoping they complete conveying the rest of the culvert pipes on time”, he stated.

He also announced that one Mr. Seth Fiati has also promised to provide some number of trucks of gravel towards the construction f the culvert.
