Volta Region roads will be improved before end of year – Minister assures

The Volta Regional Minister, Archibald Letsa wants residents in the Volta Region to be calm as the government works assiduously to fix the bad roads there.

He says the government will by the end of this year ensure that the deplorable roads in the region are given a facelift to bring relief to them.

Residents of the Volta Region have been protesting over the terrible conditions of major road projects such as the famous Eastern Corridor Road, the dualization of the Ho Major Roads and the Ho-Aflao roads.

But speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show, Dr. Letsa argued that the government’s commitment to improving the country’s road networks will compel the Roads Minister to expedite the processes involved to bring contractors on site.

Agitations have been rife over the past few months with a social media campaign, to mount pressure on the government to pay attention to the numerous bad roads in the region.

A social media campaign with the hashtag #FixVoltaRoads got social media flooded with pictures and videos of some of the worst parts of the bad roads in the Region.

This was to mount pressure on the government to pay attention to the bad roads in there.

The group earlier gave the government a number of deadlines to bring the contractors back onto the roads but to no avail.

Meanwhile, ahead of President Akufo-Addo’s visit to the region, work has resumed on some main roads in the Volta Region.

Some residents in the Ho Municipality of the Volta Region tell Citi News that they expect the President to among other things, address the issue of bad roads during his two-day tour.
