Almost all the major trunk roads leading to Techiman in the Brong Ahafo region are largely being reshaped to guarantee smooth transportation for travelers.

Mr. Addai  Simon, Member of Parliament for Techiman South constituency in a recent interview with has observed that it was only a small portion in between the Kumasi session and Kintampo which requires some attention to duly enhance the road network in the municipality.

He indicated that the road infrastructure is gaining some leverage in the area since some sessions like Kumasi and the Techiman-Kintampo roads have all been asphalted to facilitate business and some economic activities between the north and the South with the area relatively serving as a central point of the country.

However during a working tour yesterday in the Techiman municipality in the Brong Ahafo region by the Minister for Roads and Highways, Alhaji Amin Amidu Sulemana, the MP called on the attention of the Minister to consider some maintenance works on the Techiman-Sunyani and the Techiman-Nkoranza roads respectively.

He said because the roads were both constructed long time ago they are gradually losing their quality which needed some level of maintenance.

Meanwhile some 7km stretch of roads is also currently under construction in the Techiman township which includes the Dwomor road, University road, Travellers court hotel road and the Kingsaquaa road all located in the district.
