Ashaiman Municipal Assembly (ASHMA) on Tuesday inaugurated four completed projects at a total cost of GH¢1.7 million.
The projects are a 10-seater water closet toilet facility for the Ashaiman Senior High School, sheds and pavement at the main market as well as street lights at Taabo Electoral Area.
Numo Adinortey Addison, Ashaiman Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) who inaugurated the projects, said the market sheds and the pavement cost GH¢270,000, while a total of GH¢52,000 went into the construction of the toilet facility.
Numo Addison added that the installation of the street lights which cost GH¢139,000 was part of the implementation of the phase two of the Urban Environmental Sanitation Programme.
He said under that project, a total of about GH¢1.9 million would be used to construct streets, drains as well as the installation of streetlights at 11 electoral areas.
The MCE indicated that the construction of the sheds was to enable many of the market women to get comfortable places to sell their wares.
He pleaded with the market women and other residents to honour their toll obligations, to enable the assembly to undertake more development projects.
Numo Addison said the installation of the street lights would also improve the lives of residents in the area, as well as bring a face-lift to urban poor communities and slums.
On the Ashaiman Senior High School toilet facility, he said the project was part of planned programmes of the assembly, to help upgrade the only public academic facility in the Municipality.
He said the municipal assembly is considering the building of an assembly hall and a Library facility for the school.
