President John Mahama has cut sod for the construction of roads in cocoa growing areas in the Eastern region.

The project which is to ensure the smooth transportation of cocoa from the hinterlands to market centres is being financed by the Ghana Cocoa Board.

President Mahama in his State of the Nation Address in 2015, listed a number of roads that were to be improved under the cocoa roads programme.

Addressing a gathering of chiefs and people at the ceremony on Wednesday, Mr Mahama indicated that the project will not delay since monies have already being allocated for it.

 

The project being supervised and implemented by the Ghana Highways Authority will see roads in within the Adeisu, Asamankese and Kyebi catchment areas improved.

 

Government has set aside $150 million for the programme which cuts across all the cocoa growing regions of the country.
