The Honourable Minister of Roads and Highways, Mr. Francis Asenso-Boakye, has cut the sod for work to begin on a 119-kilometer asphaltic overlay of the Berekum to Sampa road in the Bono Region which is to be constructed by Messrs Rango Construction Ltd.

Speaking at the short sod-cutting ceremony at Jinijini in the Berekum West District on 1st April 2024, Mr. Asenso-Boakye said the country is “progressively realizing its goal of reconstruction, rehabilitation and maintenance of major and critical trunk roads in all parts of the country.”

According to the Minister the Berekum-Sampa road is a lifeline because “it connects Berekum to the Border town of Sampa and traverses through major cashew growing towns like Jinijini, Japekrom, Drobo, Dwenem, Seketia and Suma Ahenkro “.

He said the road will ultimately “enhance accessibility to markets, healthcare, education, significantly reduce travel time and cost within these communities and also facilitate trade with our neighbouring country of La Côte d’Ivoire.

The Honourable Bono Regional Minister, Madam Justina Owusu Banahene who was present at the ceremony, expressed her delight for the project saying most road networks in the region are in deplorable conditions with regular complaints coming from the people.

She said the project when completed would fast-track the transportation of food stuffs and enhance other business activities in the region and beyond.

The chief of Jinijini, Nana TuTu Asare Baffour ll on his part commended government ensuring development in the country since assuming power in 2017.

The Roads and Highways Minister together with the Bono Regional Minister and their team later inspected some road networks in Sunyani and Odumasi.
