The Member of Parliament for Gomoa West, Hon. Francis Kojo Arthur has disclosed government’s intention to complete the Apam-Nkramo and Afransi high ways with funding from the expected EUROBOND money.

The road which started last year had suffered setbacks due to inadequate funding but the MP expressed optimism that the 30 kilometers road project could be completed by end of the year if the necessary funds are secured from the expected EUROBOND money.

Speaking in an interview with, Hon. Kojo noted that plans are far advanced to get other road networks within the constituency reconstructed to ease transportation difficulties faced by commuters and motorists who ply the road.

Meanwhile, the MP also noted that the works will soon commence on the Nkrumen Irrigation Dam.

He said the project is expected to provide reliable source of water to farmers especially during harmattan seasons, adding that this could go a long way to improve crop production for export and local consumption.

He however asserted that the Agriculture minister Mr. Clement Kofi Humado is expected at the project site in the next couple of weeks to perform a short sod cutting ceremony in order to kick-start the project.
