This follows the completion of work on the 10-kilometre stretch valued at about GHC45 million.

Work on the stretch began in 2010, but it exceeded its two-year scheduled completion date due to change in the design and the interruptions in payments.

The road has opened up the Vane Traditional Area and provided a shorter alternative route from Ho to Hohoe.

Mr Charles Kwaku Baah, the Engineer’s Representative of the GHA, said all safety measures such as guard rails, speed rumps, “New Jersey Barriers” and “traffic calming measures” had been provided.

Mr Francis Ganyaglo, the Deputy Volta Regional Minister, who witnessed the handing over ceremony, described the road as a “master piece”.

“This is Rolider handiwork,” he said. “It is quality and we the people of the Volta Region are grateful to the Government and Rolider for this road,” he said.

The Ho-Fume road project – phases one and two – is 17 kilometres, starting from the OLA Senior High School, in Ho, to Fume in the Ho West District.

The first phase of seven kilometres was completed and handed over six years ago.
