Veep cuts sod for upgrading works on inner roads at Garrisons
Vice President Dr. Mahamamudu Bawumia has today [Friday, May 22, 2020], cut sod for works to begin on the upgrading of inner roads within all the Garrisons of the Ghana Armed Forces across the country.
The 250 kilometres of asphalt, bituminous surfacing and reconstruction form part of the ongoing Barracks Re-generation Project, which has seen President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo commission among others a 64-block housing unit at the Duala Barracks of Burma Camp, Armoured Fighting Vehicles and vehicles of all types including pickups/patrol vehicles, over 50 comfortable buses as well as several ongoing projects across the garrisons across the country.
He reiterated President Akufo-Addo’s commitment to retooling all the Services, tackle the accommodation deficit, and upgrade the roads in the garrisons.
The Vice President said the government is not relenting on its Agenda of declaring this year ‘The Year of Roads’, even in the face of the crisis of the COVID 19 pandemic facing us.
He also urged the contractors to ensure that high-quality work is done for the roads to last.
