Lambussie District to witness tarred road
The Lambussie District, the only district in the Upper West Region without a single tarred road, is set to receive an improved road network.
The district is currently plagued with unmotorable roads, making transportation a challenging experience for motorists who use them.
In an exclusive interview with Info Radio, Mr Naluri George Gerard, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Lambussie District Assembly, revealed that the government had awarded the contract to tar 8km of the Nandom-Bruto to Lambussie SHS road.
The contractor is currently on site, and the DCE is confident that the work will be completed in about four months.
Mr Naluri, however, appealed for more roads in the district to be worked on, especially the Bruto-Lambussie-Piina-Samoa road, which he described as the mother of Lambussie roads.
The DCE disclosed that the Lambussie township roads were awarded to a contractor in 2019, but the contractor did not show up after the contract was awarded.
He said the government may terminate the contract and re-award it to a different contractor.
He noted that the district has about nine roads currently being worked on through the European Union roads project.
