President Akufo-Addo has inspected ongoing work on the Dixcove Landing Beach, a project whose construction commenced a year ago.

The President undertook the exercise on Saturday, September 4, during his two-day tour of the Western Region.

With the breakwater and marine work some 90% complete, the project coordinator indicated to the President, that reclamation and demolition works are also complete, with onshore facilities that will commence in early October, 2021.

It is expected that these works will be completed in the next 6 months.

Once completed, the facility will bring a lot of relief to the fishermen and the fisherfolk, who constitute a greater number of the population.

Other ancillary facilities that will complement the fish landing site include ice-making plants, water supply and electricity supply, washing facilities and toilets for the fisherfolk, net mending sheds, as well as nursery and daycare facilities for the women.

It will be recalled that during his tour of the Western Region in 2019, the President symbolically cut the sod for the construction of 11 modern landing sites along the coast.

The other nine beneficiary towns are Moree, Mumford, Winneba, Senya Beraku, Gomoa Fetteh and Elmina in the Central Region, Teshie and James Town in the Greater Accra Region, and Keta in the Volta Region.

At Bogoso, the President inspected ongoing work on the construction of the 46-bed Bogoso Polyclinic, which is being constructed by VAMED Nederland BV.
