Volta Region’s much anticipated first-ever dual carriageway project is scheduled to be completed in December, 2022. 

This was revealed by the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Yao Letsa, when he inspected road projects under construction within the Ho Municipality.

The Minister assured residents of early completion in order to boost economic activities in the municipality 

Dr. Letsa noted that the contractor, China Railway No.5 Engineering, has returned to the site to complete the work without any further delay.

The 10.2km Sokode-Ho road project, being undertaken at a cost of GHS98 million, began in August, 2016, but was halted in September, 2017 after several challenges including funding. The resumption has been made possible by the release of funds to contractors, China Railway No.5 Engineering Ghana Limited.

“The contractor has assured the government that some facelifts will be seen by May, 2022 with the total completion in December, we are happy and hopeful that everything works out as planned,” he said.

Dr. Letsa noted that government is very much aware of the worries of residents about the initial slow pace of work and some other concerns.
