The Member of Parliament (MP) for Sunyani East, Hon. Kwasi Ameyaw-Cheremeh, has stated that it is not enough to blame road contractors alone, for shoddy works, our engineers and other officials in the road sector must equally share the blame.
“Much as we point fingers at road contractors for our poor road networks, road engineers and other state officials who give out and approve such contracts should also be held accountable for the thorny issue of bad roads in Brong Ahafo and Ghana in general,” he stated.
Hon. Ameyaw-Cheremeh was re-acting to the current state of some important roads in his constituency, namely Penkwase, Nkwabeng North (May Fair) and the Regional Hospital road linking Sunyani to Chiraa and Techiman, on Suncity Radio, Tuesday morning.
He indicated that work on the drainage systems was still in progress, but that of the roads had come to a standstill due to financial constraints; stressing that road construction was very expensive and a highly capital intensive venture.
The MP gave the assurance that all road projects in the municipality would be reviewed and given the necessary attention for their successful completion to ensure safe and free movement of goods and services from within and across the region.
He, therefore, urged the travelling and general public, to exercise patience, while the NPP government adopted a more effective process of putting our roads in order, to reduce road accidents, environmental pollutions and all the incidents and discomforts that go with bad roads.
Hon. Ameyaw-Cheremeh used the opportunity to call for a more effective and efficient system of monitoring and supervision of the road construction process, to ensure quality works, and improve the lifespan of our roads, and save cost.
