The Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) is to dredge the Ashaiman/Sakumono drain as part of measures to curb perennial flooding of the Ashaiman under-pass.

Mr Stephen Attipoe, Tema Metropolitan Road Engineer said the dredging would cost GH¢1,000,000.

Mr Attipoe said this in Tema on Thursday when Nii Amarh Ashitey, Greater Accra Regional Minister and Mr Robert Kemps-Ofosuware, TMA Chief Executive, inspected road projects in the Metropolis.

He said the Nungua barrier road to the Ashaiman under-pass would also be rehabilitated, adding that tendering was ongoing.

Mr Attipoe said a bridge would be constructed to link Klagon to Community 12 for motorists to easily move from Klagon to Tema without using the Ashaiman under-pass.

He said 12.3 kilometres of roads in Tema Community One and its environs under construction would be asphalted.

The roads included the Republic Road, Baba Yara Road, George Padmore Road and others.

Nii Amarh Ashitey congratulated the TMA and the Ministry of Roads and Highways for starting the rehabilitation of the Tema roads, which had lacked major repairs over the past 40 years.

He also appealed to drivers to observe regulations on axel road, overloading and proper parking.

Mr Kemps-Ofosuware stated that TMA would fulfill every promise made to residents.
