Year of roads: Asphalt overlay in progress - Accra roads, regional capitals beneficiaries

BY: Kester Aburam Korankye

Asphalt overlay on deteriorating road surfaces has begun in some communities across the country.

The project, which started in July this year, is being executed by a number of contractors, many of them local companies, to rehabilitate the roads to give residential and commercial areas a facelift.

Major cities enjoying the overlays include Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi, Sunyani, Tamale and Bolgatanga.

In Accra, where the bulk of work is centred, five local construction companies have been awarded separate contracts to rehabilitate the roads to give residential and commercial areas in Accra a facelift.

A Daily Graphic team that monitored the progress of overlay works on roads within the cities noticed that some suburbs had already been given a facelift through the ongoing road rehabilitation project.
