Prestea MCE inspects work on Huni-Valley road

The MCE described the work of the contractor as worth appreciating

The Municipal Chief Executive of Prestea Huni-Valley in the Western Region, Mozart Kweku Owuh has assessed the progress of work on the road from Insu to Huni-Valley.

The road which also serves as an alternate route for businessmen and women to and from Bogoso had over the years been in a very terrible state.

The reshaping of the 19.4-kilometre road which was initiated by the Member of Parliament for the area, Barbara Oteng-Gyasi with sponsorship from Ghana Highways Authority, even before its completion, has brought immense relief to drivers and the communities that rely heavily on it to transport their farm produce to Bogoso market.

The MCE described the work of the contractor as worth appreciating considering the timeline used and the quality of work done,

"I am very optimistic the reshaping of this road which was in a deplorable nature, will reduce the frustration people go through on daily basis and will bring relief to the people especially drivers," he noted.

Mr Owuh further tasked the contractor working on the stretch to finish ahead of schedule.

Speaking to the media after the inspection of the project, Mozart Kweku Owuh assured residents that, the Member of Parliament is committed to fixing other deplorable roads to improve the livelihoods of the people in the Constituency.

The Ghana Highways engineer applauded the Member of Parliament and the Municipal Assembly for taking such initiative.

Maame Akosua, a farmer at John Beposo said besides agricultural benefits, the road has also come with other social benefits as communities will now have access to amenities such as schools and hospitals.

Some drivers expressed appreciation to the municipal assembly and its partners for reshaping the road, which was dear to the hearts of the people.
