Concrete roads to begin
… pilot starts with Tema steel works road
AS part of new strategies to build long-lasting roads, government has resolved to undertake the construction of roads in the country with concrete.
The Tema Steel Works road will be used as a pilot project.
Vice-President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, made the disclosure while speaking at the dedication of a temple for Harvest Chapel International Ministries in Accra.
Even though it costs more to build concrete roads, Dr Bawumia believes that considering the lifespan of concrete roads to asphalted or bitumen roads, it makes better economic sense to construct concrete roads.
“Why is it that we are not building our roads with concrete and rather doing all this asphalt, bitumen stuff which gets washed away after about two rainy seasons?”
