The traditional chief of Asamankese Osaberima Adu Darko III has expressed worry at the state of the roads in Asamankese the capital of West Akim Municipality.
According to him, the state of the roads is affecting their day to day activities and as such it is now a death trap for pedestrians, passengers and drivers as well.
In an interview with Rite news, Mr. Kofi Asare, secretary to Osaberima, he stated that the state of the road had negative impact on inhabitants of the community as far as their farming activities were concerned.
According to him, drivers found it difficult to transport farm produce to the market places from the various farms hence resulting in post-harvest loses. He stated further that letters have been sent to High Ways and COCOBOD but to no avail.
He went ahead to say that the contractor who is supposed to work on the road has suspended his activities on the road due to lack of funds from the government since 2016 after different encounters with the contractor.
He appealed to the government to come to their aid because the roads have so badly deteriorated that ‘mini valleys’ have been created in the middle of the roads although the new Municipal Chief Executive, Honorable Seth Oduro Boadu has assured them that they are still calling on the government for assistance.
