Spintex Road closed for Ghana Water project

The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has announced that sections of the Spintex Road will be closed to commuters on Friday and Saturday to enable their engineers to execute an interconnection of pipelines in the area to improve on water supply to the surrounding communities.

Sections of the road that will be partially blocked from 8 pm to 6 am on Friday, January 18 and Saturday, January 19 stretch from the Manet Junction to the Frimps Filling Station on the Spintex Road.

The GWCL in a statement issued Thursday said it was committed to completing the works this weekend after it failed to execute the same project last week

"The works will involve cutting off the road to lay new pipelines and connect to the existing 32inch transmission line on the motorway," the GWCL said in the statement signed by its Director of Communications, Stanley Martey.

"The portion of the road which will be affected will be reinstated immediately the work is completed.

"The general public especially residents in the area are assured that the work will not affect water supply to the area. The Management of GWCL will like to caution commuters off the road of the danger, and must take note and comply with road diversionary signs to avoid any eventualities".

The statement also expressed regret about the inconvenience the project will cause commuters.
