Ishmael A. Junourgh, Accra,
The Member Of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya Constituency, Hon Adwoa Safo with some NPP executives has inspected development projects constructed to avoid flooding in the area.
Assembly projects inspection in Ghana is mandated by the Local Government’s 2016 Act 936.
Briefing journalists during the occasion, the Hon MP noted a number of projects rehabilitated, or under construction encompassing bridges, and roads, ahead of the rains, this year.
The projects, include Taifa, Mr Adgei, Kaizer valley, Dome crossing bridge, GyeNyame, Agbogbaablajei, Abokobi-Taimah Road.
She pleaded with owners of building properties whose activities may be affected by the ongoing constructions to cooperate with the Assembly for development of the area to thrive.
She said most of the roads will take a year to complete, and the bridges will take at least six months.
The MP with her party executives, in the projected tour, made stops to interact with market women and drivers for their inputs in the projects.
The Municipal Chief Executive for Ga East Assembly, Hon. Janet Tulasi Mensah went on to say that the area is a flood-prone zone, and they have to put in some measures to correct the canker.
In the first place, the major cause of the trouble is indiscriminate building across water paths by some neighbours.
This has resulted in a collaboration of the MP and the Assembly to prioritise projects that can control floods, and improve the drainage system in the area.
The site-engineer for the Assembly, Ing. Foster Aboagye listed the projects inspected as follow: Kwabena round about taifa road which covers 100 meters x 500meters, Taifa Obohene Down the road, Kaiser valley-Taifa bridge, Dome Crossing drainage, Hamburg bridge at Dome, Tieman Abokobi Road, Abokobi Ashongman road, Ablajei bridge, and Agbogba Cemetery Pantang landfill.
When asked, he said he could not disclose the cost because there were more contingencies to be considered.
