The Madina-Melcom road in the La-Nkwatanang Municipal Assembly of the Greater Accra Region is seeing a massive reconstruction.
The works, which was under the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for the Madina Constituency and Minister of State at the Vice President’s Office, Abubakar Saddique Boniface, broke ground on Monday, August 10, and will cover the road from PRESEC Staff School to the Madina–Melcom shopping mall area.
The roads have over the years been a bane to residents and drivers in the area, but following the intervention of the MP, User Construction Company Limited has moved earth-moving and other construction equipment to the municipality for works to begin.
The Minister for Roads and Highways, Hon. Kwesi Amoako- Atta, disclosed that works on the roads form part of government’s decision to validate contracts already signed by the previous National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) administration.
He said the roads from University of Professional Studies (UPSA) to the American House roundabout have been upgraded and asphalted, while the Rawlings Roundabout road to the Old Asanka Local area, among others, is being worked on.
He further hinted that construction of roads will this year begin in the Zongo communities across the country and that Madina would be the launch pad for such constructions.
The Minister and his team of directors, led by Dr. Abass Awal, the Director of Urban Roads, assessed the levels of roads in the constituency and assured residents that the constituency is about to see a massive facelift.
