Madina-Adentan footbridge was designed during Kufuor’s era - Inusah Fuseini

NDC Member of Parliament [MP] for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini has debunked claims that his party settled for the ‘great wall of China’ style design for the Madina-Adentan Highway footbridge project.

In an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’, Inusah Fuseini said the design was approved by the ex-President John Agyekum Kufuor led government.

“It was so beautiful then so we [NDC] did not change it,” he said.

One of the Madina-Adentan Highway footbridge projects, which commenced in November 2018, has been completed.

Some pedestrians have started using the footbridge to cross over the highway.

Pedestrians are using the footbridge at the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) junction while workers of First Sky Limited, the company undertaking the project are busily paving the front view and sidewalk of the completed bridge with others applying the final coating on the metal railings.

All the six footbridges at the various locations; Firestone, Madina-Zongo Junction, Redco Junction, Ritz Junction, SDA Junction and WASS were at various stages of completion.

An Opportunity To Exercise

Some residents of Adentan, a suburb of Accra, complained about the unfriendly nature of the bridge, claiming it takes a lot of time and effort to cross it.

But, the Tamale Central MP believes the footbridge, inasmuch as it is disability friendly, would also help to improve the health of Ghanaians, especially residents in the community.

He urged pedestrians to stop criticising the project, laud the government and see the footbridge as an opportunity to exercise.
