The Tema West Municipality in the Greater Accra Region has announced the completion of 29.55 kilometres of asphalted roads within the area. This was made known by Ms. Anna Adukwei Addo, the Municipal Chief Executive, during the first ordinary meeting of the fourth session of the second Assembly held at Baatsonaa.
According to Ms. Addo, the asphalted roads are part of a 50-kilometer package to be completed within the municipality. The Municipal Chief Executive further stated that the Tema West Municipality was committed to ensuring the development and maintenance of good roads for residents and motorists.
Road development and maintenance are critical aspects of the local economy that require enormous investment, she said. The municipality’s policy is to ensure that residents enjoy good roads within their various communities.
Ms. Adukwei Addo revealed that the municipality had made significant progress in different aspects of the local economy. The areas that have seen significant gains include agriculture and food security, environmental health and sanitation, work development control, social welfare, education and sports, and health, among others.
However, the progress made in these critical sectors has been stifled, and the Municipal Assembly is eager to do more to improve the lives of the people under its authority.
The Tema West MCE urged citizens and stakeholders, including Assembly Members, to continue to assist the Municipal Assembly in carrying out its mandated duties to the people.
For the most part, the completion of 29.55 kilometres of asphalted roads in the Tema West Municipality is a significant milestone that will undoubtedly ease traffic congestion and enhance the local economy’s growth. The Municipal Assembly’s commitment to improving critical sectors, such as agriculture, environmental health, and education, among others, is a commendable effort that will benefit the people in the long run.
