Work has begun on a two-kilometre road to link Teshie Tsui Bleoo junction to Agblizaa, both in the Ledzokuku Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA).

The project is being funded by the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) at the cost of GH¢4,500 as part of its social responsibility.

When completed, the road would reduce traffic congestion and promote viable commercial activity in the predominantly fishing community.

Speaking at an inspection tour of the project site, Lt Stephen Karbo, a project officer at the 48 Engineers Regiment indicated that the GAF institution was committed to building a congenial atmosphere between the soldiers and the communities they operate in,the general public, as well as government agencies.

“And whereas GAF celebrates 60 years of  military excellence, reshaping of the link road to create convenience for the community would also go along way to help in crime reduction in the municipality”, he stated.

The Municipal Chief Executive for the area, Mr Daniel Amartey Mensah, commended the 48 Engineers and the Military High Command for the initiative,which he said would go a long way in completing the Assembly's developmental goals.

He said the Assembly was soliciting for funds for the construction of a dual carriage  to link the Spintex Road and the Tema Motorway interchange project.

“It is our hope that the need funds would raised for the commencement of the project in March 2010″,he stated.

Mr Mensah assured that LEKMA would not hesitate to award 20 per cent of its contract to the GAF after it had cleared the necessary processes from the National Procurement Authority.
