Aboadze sea defence project begins

A multi-million-dollar sea defence project to protect the Aboadze Thermal Plant and surrounding communities has started.

The contractors undertaking the $30-million project, Xara Developers Limited, have started putting up boulders on the two-kilometre sea defence wall and the work is expected to be completed in June this year.

Apart from protecting the thermal generation units, residents in the Aboadze and Abuesi communities will also be protected from the perennial tidal waves which destroy their property.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic, the District Chief Executive for Shama, Mr Enoch K. Appiah, said the project was dear to the people of Shama.

He said the project had started with the support of the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing as it acted on a report on perennial tidal waves that affected the people.

Mr Appiah said with the quantum of rock deposit in the area, the contractor would not have any problem getting the needed rocks for the early completion of the project.

He said the government was committed to the project and would ensure that the coast was protected
