‘Greater Accra People Have Been Disturbing Me About Dualisation Of Adenta-Dodowa Road’ – Dr. Bawumia

Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said that the people of Greater Accra, have been disturbing him with calls for the dualisation of the Adenta-Dodowa Road.

 

He was speaking to the newly appointed Chinese Ambassador, H.E. Lu Kun, at the sod-cutting for construction of a 100km inner city road at Kumasi, which forms part of the Sinohydro project.

 

The Vice President said the Adenta-Dodowa project has been lingering and called for support from the Chinese government to execute it.

“You know that there is one project about which I have been calling you [the Chinese Ambassador] virtually every day. That is in Greater Accra because the people of Greater Accra have been disturbing me about it, which is the Adenta-Dodowa dualisation.

 

 

 

I am hoping that with your help, we will get that project started for the people between Adenta and Dodowa”, Dr. Bawumia said.

The Adenta-Dodowa road is one of ten lots approved under the Chinese-sponsored arrangement, $2 Sinohydro billion deal, which was scheduled to begin in 2019.

Three years down the line, the road remains undone, in a complete state of disrepair, with traffic congestion worsening by the day.

 

A report by JoyNews’ Evans Mensah last year, revealed the devastating situation.

Government in 2021 justified the non-completion of some infrastructure projects under the Sinohydro deal with China.

According to government, the phased plan along which the projects are supposed to commence, is the reason for the seeming slowdown in activity as far as the project is concerned.

The Office of the Vice President says so far, “they have done over $100 million worth of work from 2019.”

In May 2018, government signed a Master Project Support Agreement with Sinohydro for the construction of key infrastructure in exchange for the proceeds of Ghana’s refined bauxite.
