The District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Lower Manya-Krobo District Assembly, Mr. David Sackitey Asare, has performed the sod-cutting ceremony for the commencement of both the redevelopment and rehabilitation of the Kpong and Aseswa lorry parks respectively.
The project, which would be funded by KFW Germany, and Ministry of Local Government at an estimated cost of GH¢894,000, is expected to be completed within a period of nine months.
The project, which is part of the Town- Five project, would be executed by Ghana Concrete Works Limited, an Accra-based construction firm, with the Urban Development Consortium as consultants.
It would have facilities such as parking space for heavy duty vehicles, a solid refuse holding bay and six-seater KVIP and urinal, when completed.
As part of the project, there would be construction of a six-unit classroom and six-seater urinal, for both Akuse Roman Catholic and Manya Kpongonor Presby kindergartens, as well as a three-unit classroom block for the Nsuoa Primary School.
Speaking at the short but impressive ceremony, which was attended by staff of the Assembly, representatives of various transport unions, contractors and consultants for the project, the DCE expressed his great joy to the government and its development partners, for their contributions towards the development of the area.
According to him, out of 36 districts that applied for the project, Lower Manya Krobo District was one of the districts considered among the six for the project.
On his part, the Technical Director for Ghana Concrete Works Limited thanked the DCE and his team of consultants, for considering his firm to execute the project. That notwithstanding, he pledged his outfit's readiness to execute a first class job, and complete the project before the stipulated completion date.
