Work on the Cape Coast Technical University and Ayifua roads is currently ongoing.
Mr Mensah said other roads under the Sino Hydro projects included the Kakumdo road, the Academy road, the Kwaprow link and the Besakrom-Dankwakrom road.
“Work is ongoing and we are very likely to be on schedule for completion,” he stated.
In November 2019, the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, cut the sod for the construction and rehabilitation of the Inner City Roads in Cape Coast Project.
Under the project, the roads were to be rehabilitated and upgraded to improve accessibility and quality of life.
Communities to benefit from the project are Akotokyir, Kwaprow, Amamoma, Abura New Community, English Arabic area, PPAG area, Amissano, Besakrom, Dunkwakrom, Ayifua and Kakumdo.
The project is being undertaken with funding from the Ghana-Sinohydro Master Project Support Agreement that seeks to leverage a fraction of Ghana’s bauxite deposit for some critical infrastructure projects worth $2 billion.
Mr Mensah said many roads in Cape Coast, including the Ashanti road, London Bridge, Post office-Ntsin road, part of the Degraft Johnson road, and the Nkanfoa road, were going to have asphalt surfacing.
He said asphalt overlays were also being undertaken in Agona Swedru and Kasoa currently.
