Communities appeal to assembly to reshape road

By gna

Communities in the Birim North District of the Eastern Region, on Wednesday, appealed to the assembly to reshape the bad portion of the major road from Ayiribe to New Abirem.

The bad portion of the road cuts Ofoase from the rest of the communities in the area, following torrential rains that had rendered portions of the Akyem Oda - Nkawkaw road impassable.

Many vehicles got stuck on the road at Akyem Brenase and were being towed by tractors, when the Ghana News Agency (GNA) visited the area.

Vehicles travelling from Akyem Oda to Nkawkaw had to make a detour through Akyem Adwafo before continuing their journey.

Drivers and passengers using the road expressed regret that such an important road could be left to deteriorate.

They therefore appealed to the sector Ministry to reshape the road.

They stated that the present deplorable shape of the road was hampering economic activities in the area.

The said it was especially bad for farmers, as they were finding it difficult to transport their farm produce to the marketing centres.
