Minister cuts the sod to construct bridge on River Tano

Mehame (B/A), Jan. 25, GNA - Alhaji Collins Dauda, Minister of Transport on Tuesday cut the sod for work to commence on the construction of a metal bridge over River Tano on the Mehame-Dadiesoba feeder road in Asutifi District of Brong-Ahafo.

The project, expected to be completed in March this year, is being executed by the Bridge Maintenance Unit of the Ghana Highway Authority at the cost of GHc300,000.


The deplorable condition of the old wooden bridge on the river has been a great worry to residents in the two cocoa producing communities as they are always cut-off from each other during the rainy season.

Alhaji Dauda explained that the government was committed to ensuring that the national cake was shared equally irrespective of political inclination.
