We will not pay you if you don’t return to fix the road – Ministry threatens contractor

We will not pay you if you don’t return to fix the road – Ministry threatens contractor

A shoddy road work done on the Ahmadiyya Junction to Abokobi road has sparked a reaction from the Roads and Highways Ministry.

This was obvious after a section of the road that was constructed only in February 2021 has started developing potholes forcing the ministry to call out the contractors to get back to the site to ensure proper work is done.

They risk not being paid if they flout this order according to the Roads and Highways Ministry.

 Public Relations Officer for the Ministry, Ahmed Nasir Yartey, further revealed that contractors had been tasked to return to the site to fix the damaged portions of the road.

The Ministry also cautioned that the contractors will not be paid for previous work done until the damaged portions of the road are fixed.

Meanwhile, Deputy Public Relations Officer for the Ministry, Isaac Agyei Kwaku also added that the entire project is expected to be completed within two years.

Concerns have been raised over the poor state of the road by residents and motorists. Works on this road were commenced in 2019 after the legislator for the constituency cut sod for this project.

Other road projects at various stages of completion in the constituency include the Taifa-Burkina road, Atomic-Roundabout-Kwabenya-Abuom road, asphalting of Kwabenya-Abuom-Ashongman Estate road, and Musuku-Roundabout road, among others.
