Asphalting work has begun on some parts of the Tarkwa –Wassa Agona highway after series of protest by residents in the Tarkwa Nsueam Municipality.
The contractor; Asabea Engineering Limited is currently working on the Ahwiteaso- Ideal College stretch of the highway. This approach taken by the contractor has been questioned by many as to whether it was the right choice of place to at least alleviate the discomfort of motorist and pedestrians that use that road. Some residents expected the contractor to have worked on the gullied and ratted subbase of the road that stretch from Tamso to Tarkwa before embarking on the asphalting phase.
A resident and entrepreneur, Juliet Awuku Mensah has his office a few meters off the highway and shared how nauseating dust from the surface of the road is to dwellers.
