THERE IS good news for residents of Manhyia North Constituency in Kumasi as some of the deplorable roads in the area are currently being fixed.
The town roads at Moshie Zongo, a densely-populated Muslim area in the constituency, have been earmarked to be upgraded to befitting status.
The effort of the Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia North Constituency, Collins Owusu Amankwa, contributed to the positive news.
The hardworking law maker recently complained bitterly about the deplorable state of roads in his constituency and called for an urgent action to be taken.
This was when the Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako-Atta, embarked on a working tour to inspect the state of roads in Kumasi.
The Roads Minister then assured that he would make sure that the Manhyia North Constituency roads, which looked terrible, would be fixed.
True to the Minister’s firm promise, works have started to upgrade the state of roads at Moshie Zongo to beautify the place.
The paper gathered that the Moshie Zongo road contract had been awarded long time ago but there were no funds for the contractor to execute the project.
The NPP government, which is just one-year in office, has decided to pump in cash so that the roads would be upgraded to help give the place a facelift.
Owusu Amankwa said the facelift of the roads at Moshie Zongo would help enhance movement of people and goods and also boost productivity.
He gave an assurance that he would continue to lobby until all the roads at Manhyia North Constituency are upgraded to acceptable standards, in no time.
