Contractors advised to complete road works on scheduled

An Assembly Member of the Birim Central Municipal Assembly in the Eastern Region, on Saturday advised contractors working on the major and feeder roads in the municipality to put in maximum efforts to complete their contracts on schedule.
Mr Reginald Sackey, Assembly Member for Essam Electoral Area, reiterated the need for civil engineers to avoid executing shoddy works.
Speaking in an interview to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Essam near Akim Oda in the Eastern Region, he said drivers plying Essam to Akim Oda, had complained bitterly to him about the deplorable condition of the road and therefore, threatened to withdraw their services.
According to Mr Sackey, a few months ago the four-kilometre road from the town to the Oda Secondary School junction, on the main Oda - Ofoase road was reshaped, but had very soon deteriorated.
Mr Sackey said there were certain portions of the oda - New Abirem highway that had completely worsen and needed urgent repair works.
He appealed to the Highway and Feeder Roads Authorities to terminate the contract of any contractor whose performance fell below expectation to ensure that efficient work was done.
The Assembly Member advised contractors to ensure that they stayed at the sites always, to monitor the progress of work and not to leave work in the hands of their labourers.
