Roads found in deplorable states in Cape Coast will soon be fixed to reduce the discomfort that road users within the metropolis face.

Metropolitan Maintenance Engineer at the Department of Urban Roads, Mr. Festus Attoh says plans are far advanced to undertake the projects. Mr. Attoh in an interview told ATL FM, the proposed exercise has been made possible due to government giving the nod for the continuation of all projects halted due to the change of government.

He says in view of this, three contractors have been given the clearance to begin work. The Sonturk-Kotokuraba stretch as well as the Ashanti road-Tantre stretch are currently being worked on.

Mr. Attoh disclosed that funding has been a major challenge, since some road networks in the metropolis have outlived their purpose and require intensive works to give them a facelift.

Responding to concerns raised regarding the number of potholes on roads in the metropolis, Mr. Attoh said by September this year, works would start in fixing a total of 10 kilometers of road in the metropolis.
