President John Dramani Mahama has cut sod to mark the start of the rehabilitation of the Koforidua-Bunso roads in the Eastern region.

The road serves as an important link for travellers from parts of the Eastern and Greater Accra regions to the Ashanti Region and beyond.

 

The deplorable nature of the corridor currently, particularly the numerous potholes on it, has become a headache for motorists.

 

The Koforidua-Bunso road was constructed in the 1970s. In the 1990s, under the Highway Sector Improvement Project (HSIP) rolled out at the time to recondition the country's highways, a number of rehabilitation works were carried out on it.

 

There had been no major rehabilitation works carried out on the Koforidua-Bonsu Road after construction.

 

Even though, the contract for the road to be rehabilitated was awarded in 2008, it was terminated in June 2014 due to non-performance on the part of the contractor involved.
