Kotoko team not distracted by court case


I have always believed that every region ought to have a local airport but $23 million for a runway is totally outrageous.

It is said that 1 kilometer of asphalted two lane road costs $400,000 in Ghana which is the highest in West Africa. Assuming that the runway is 4 times as wide and only 1 km long that should be $1.6 million dollars. Assuming that the runway had a base of reinforced concrete similar to American highways that should put the total cost at not more than $4.5 million dollars. Labor costs are 20 times cheaper in Ghana.
