Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako Atta has told Parliament completion of works on Tema Steel area on the Tema Aflao road will be completed this year as soon as outstanding payments due the contractor are made.

According to the sector Minister, inspection of the Tema Roundabout-Kpone Junction revealed that the road surface has deteriorated with portholes.

He further added that the contractor working on the Dawhenya-Afienya road project was instructed to treat the defective surface and overlay with asphalt.

“The contractor, however, after completing repair works and overlay on the East bound lanes suspended works on the West bound lanes suspended works on the West bound carriageway due to lack of payment”.
