Mr Nafiu Mohamed, Dozer Operator of Menphils Metropolitan Limited, a civil engineering firm, told the GNA that the rehabilitation work is expected to be completed early next year to improve intercity connectivity.
Already, the Jaway Junction expansion work is at a fairly good stage and has so far covered about two kilometres of the road.
The engineering firm appealed to the citizenry and especially drivers to cooperate with the workers for speedy completion.
Mr Francis Ndede Bossoe, a native of Newtown Wharf and a businessman, expressed gratitude to government for constructing the road adding that “tarring of the road this time around will forestall arbitrary increases and exorbitant fares charged by drivers.”
The coastal road linking La Cote D’ Ivoire is a commercial route and dear to the hearts of people in the area but it is currently in a very deplorable state hence its re-construction.
The “Cocoa road” project was first constructed and graveled in the PNDC/NDC era but has since not been attended to by successive governments to date.
Until the reconstruction of the road, vehicles in the area ply through the coast when it is at its low tide, a development which easily damages their vehicles.
Again, patients and women in labour have to be carried all the way to Jaway Junction before getting vehicle to Half-Assini Government Hospital for treatment.
