Adeiso-Bawjiase Road: Truck Driver Clashes with Security and Contractors Over Destruction of new Roads

Truck drivers who cart sand on Adeiso to Bawjiase Road clashed with contractors and the Upper West District Security Council over the destruction of the newly constructed road.

The contractors claim the overloaded heavy-duty vehicles plying the road are causing damage to the road.

Together with the police, they attempted to stop the sand winners from using the road with their overloaded trucks.

This led to altercations on Monday between the sand winners and the contractors and the police on another side.

The District Chief Executive for Upper West Akyem, Eugene Sackey who doubles as head of the district security council intervened to resolve the impasse.

Many residents in parts of the Eastern Region continue to complain about poor roads, however, the Eastern Regional Minister, Seth Kwame Acheampong on September 19, 2022, during his turn of Meet the Press at the Information Ministry disclosed that a total of 1,487.62km of road has been completed in the Region since 2017.

Additionally, a total of 5,404.79km of road awarded to contractors since 2017.

The Minister stated that out of the number completed, 206km of road was done under the supervision of the Department of Urban roads, 440.38km and 246km of roads under the supervision of the Feeder roads department, and 595.24km of road by the Ghana Highway Authority.
