The Wa-Nandom-Hamile road has been reopened to traffic. On September 1, the 250 metre stretch of the road at Yiziri was opened to traffic, but the road had to be closed again after heavy rains on September 1 and 2.
When the Upper West Regional Minister, Dr. Hafiz Bin Salih, led a team of officials to inspect roads in the region, the road had been temporarily fixed and opened to traffic.
Dr. Hafiz Bin Salih accompanied by the Acting Regional Director of the Ghana Highway Authority, and members of the Regional Security Council visited the Sombo-Daffiama, Daffiama-Fian, the Wa-Nandom-Hamile and the Lawra-Duoro roads and other places in the Jirapa Municipality.
The team ascertained the level of work done by contractors who had been engaged to execute emergency road projects.
The Managing Director of Aschal Construction Limited, contractors for the Daffiama-Fian road, Mohammed Baba said there was initial difficulty in fixing that part of the road due to the continuous rains.
The Acting Director of the Ghana Highway Authority, Andrew Okere commended the contractors working on the Wa-Nandom-Hamile road.
He said the severity of the situation did not deter the contractors from quickly putting the road in good shape.
The Upper West Regional Minister, Dr. Hafiz Bin Salih reiterated government’s commitment to fixing all the damaged roads in the region.
