First Sky Limited, the contractor of one of the footbridges on the Adenta portion of the N4 Highway says the bridge is up to international standards.
Reacting to concerns from some sections of the public concerning the length and nature of the access ramps on the bridge, the Projects Manager of First Sky Limited, Ernest Hammond, explained that the “winding” nature of the footbridge was because of space constraint.
Speaking on radio on Accra-based Citi FM Friday morning, Mr Hammond said, the initial plan of the footbridge was disability unfriendly and that, the new design was aimed at making the footbridge accessible to all.
“The original design as I am aware of has stairs which was not disabled friendly. What we have done is more disabled friendly; meaning it is a ramp rather than stairs and it’s easier to use for everybody,” he explained.
