Listen to article

Coaltar (E/R), Jan. 5, GNA - The inhabitants of Nkemovor and Kokrodoko have appealed to the Suhum-Kraboa-Coaltar District Assembly and the Department of Feeder Roads to help them to construct a permanent bridge over river Koran at Otoase Odentekrom in the Eastern Region. Opanyin Kulapamey Kokrodoko of Otoase who made the appeal in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) said the bridge often broke down during the raining season, which prevented drivers from plying the area and made farmers suffered by carrying their farm produce to marketing centres.

He said through communal labour and contributions of 20,000 cedis each, the people had constructed a six-kilometre feeder road to link the main Coaltar-Nsawam road to facilitate easy transportation of goods and services.

Opanyin Kokrodoko said so far about five million cedis have been spent on the construction of the road.
