Residents praise Effia MP for asphalting town roads 3

The Western Region’s PTC Interchange project is the first interchange in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis, and its delay has put commuters under a lot of stress, especially during morning and evening rush hours.

Commuters will either need to get up early in the morning or wait until after rush hour has passed before heading to Takoradi’s Central Business District in order to avoid the lengthy backups. Many believe that this new manner of living is reducing productivity.

Unfortunately, many of the other routes that could have relieved the load have all been abandoned in a terrible shape.

The roads in the Effia Constituency are used as a deliberate detour during morning and evening rush hours. Therefore, if these important routes are in good condition, it will alleviate many commuters of the strain of sitting in traffic.

Residents of the area and other commuters are praising Member of Parliament Joseph Cudjoe for his dedication to seeing to the restoration of all detour roads in his area for this one and only purpose.

Asphalting has started in earnest on a number of routes that will assist relieve traffic on the Effia Nkwanta and the Fijai to Pipe Ano major arteries.

All of the following roads have been asphalted: Frafra Lane, State Housing to Cobbah Yalley, and Nana Brempong Yaw Junction to Mrs. Cudjoe.

The CDH road’s drainage improvements are nearly finished and waiting to be asphalted.

The Police Park to No. 9 road is one that Joseph Cudjoe is “pulling all strings to get done considering how important that link is,” according to an assistant to the MP, Emmanuel Opare.

At the bus stop outside the Lower Pra Rural Bank’s Effiakuma branch, cab driver Michael Ansah said: “I have noticed that certain roads have been asphalted. It’s beneficial because it will reduce our travel time and let us take more excursions.

Francis Ntim, a store owner at Takoradi CBD, stated: “Now I don’t have to worry too much about the traffic on the Effia Nkwanta road because I can use the road behind Wamco 2, connect the one around the EKMA office, use the Cobbah Yalley road, and continue through Windy Ridge to Takoradi.”

Akwasi Yeboah is thrilled that “several of the highways’ lighting systems have undergone significant modifications. Driving from Wamco 2, OKatakyie Hotel, through to the EKMA office was a terrifying experience. Thanks to our MP Joseph Cudjoe’s capable leadership, we now have street lights on them.

Taxi drivers at the Effiakuma traffic light are making a sincere request for the rehabilitation of the road leading to the Police Quarters.

Member of Parliament for Effia Joseph Cudjoe disclosed that KINGSPOK had been given a contract to perform five kilometers of asphalt overlay on a few selected highways in an interview with Takoradi-based Connect FM.

“Earlier, we completed the Frafra Line through Patience Corner Bar to connect the No. 9 road. The State Housing Road has been completed, Mrs. Cudjoe to Lower Pra will be completed, and it is anticipated that Effiakuma Zongo Night Market will be completed.

He asserts that “this new contract with KINGSPOK is different from the ASABEA road contracts that are tackling the CDH Road, East TANOKROM, Top Ridge Road, TTI Staff Road, and Koobi Bar Road among others.”
