Bibiani (W/R), May 9, GNA - Mr Joe Adansi-Bondah, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai, has reiterated the government's determination to improve the roads in all major cocoa growing communities.
In line with this, some selected roads in the area including the Adupri-Mframakrom-Tanoso and the Asawinso-Mmerewa had been awarded on contract.
The Assembly in its small way has also been funding routine maintenance works on some feeder roads linking the cocoa farming areas.

He touched on rural electricity and said a number of communities there had been hooked to the national grid.
These include Chinchinase, Morno, Kwartengkrom, Donkoto, Lineso, Aboduabo and Kroboano.
The Assembly has also embarked on an intensive repair of street lights to boost security.

Touching on the supply of motor bicycles to the assembly members, he said these must help them to better serve people in their electoral areas and warned that under no circumstance should the bicycles be sold.
Mr Adansi-Bondah thanked the chiefs and people in the District for the successful and smooth conduct of the just ended biometric voter registration.
