Residents of Manhia will very soon breathe a sigh of relief as the Member of Parliament for Tema East Constituency; Hon. Daniel Titus-Glover is facilitating the construction of two (2) additional access roads in the area.

He said the construction of the two new access roads would complement the first one by helping to reduce traffic congestion within the Manhia Township and around the VALCO industrial area, which will go a long way in improving productivity whiles ensuring safe and faster road network to and from any destination.

Although the population of the area had increased to about 60,000, according Hon. Titus-Glover, the current road since its inception over 50 years ago has received no major facelift or attention at all describing the situation as pathetic especially during peak hours.

The MP who made this known to’s Godwin Allotey observed that most patients in need of critical at health centres such as the Tema General Hospital among others usually lost their lives due to the nature of the road and the traffic situation on it.

According to Hon. Titus-Glover the above situation does not auger well for the constituency considering its strategic location and also serving as one of the major transit points within the country having so many benefits.

For this reason, he said he had consulted the Ministry of Roads and Highways for the initiation of the project whiles promising to leave no stone unturned for the fruition of the project.
