Ada-West District Roads Get Facelift
Seventy-Eight kilometres of roads in the Ada-West District are to be fixed by the Department of Feeder Roads. The roads, when fixed, will not only ease the plight of residents of some seven communities, but also boost their economic activities as the roads lead to farmlands.
So far, only 30 kilometers out of the 108km of roads in the District is tared and motorable, making it very difficult for residents in the predominantly farming communities to cart their produce to the market.
This was disclosed during a joint tour to the area by the Ada-West District Chief Executive, Hon. Adzoteye Lawer Akrofi and the Greater Accra Regional Director of feeder roads, Mr. Joshua Blay-Mieza, on Thursday.
He assured residents in the various communities that his office would urgently work on a report to the sector minister for the mobilisation of needed resources in other to start work on the roads within a short period.
On his part, Hon. Akrofi expressed the hope that, the roads, when fixed, would open up the district for economic take-off.
The Ada-West district is one of the leading districts in tomato production in the country, with more than 10,000 tomato farmlands. But due to the nature of the roads, farmers resort to the use of tricycles, which further add additional cost to their produce.
