As part of their oversight role, members of the Roads and Transport Committee on Thursday, June 27, 2024, visited Okyereko where there is ongoing construction of two new bridges as a result of flooding that displaced over one hundred and fifty (150) people in the Central Region.

The Okyereko Bridge is located on the Ayensu River which connects Kasoa to Winneba.

Chairman of the Committee Kennedy Osei-Nyarko in the company of other members of the Committee, Samuel Atta Mill, Ayii Laadi Ayamba were at the site.

The project Manager Stephen Tawai briefing the Committee noted that they are constructing two separate bridges with work is progressing steadily, adding that after the construction of the new one which would be higher than the exiting bridge the old bridge would be destroyed.

He added that the old bridge is low and cannot contain a lot of water coming from the area hence the new two bridges would be done in such a way to contain a lot of water from the river.
