The project, known as Oxygen City Street, is expected to open up several fast-growing communities in the area.
During a media tour of the project, Mr. Divine Bosson, the Ho Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), highlighted the significance of Oxygen City Street, stating, “It will have a two-sided drain, and we will demonstrate the environmental concept with trees, etc.”
The project, undertaken by Messrs First Sky, will facilitate progress on a major bridge across the southbound highway upon completion. Mr. Bosson emphasized that buildings wrongly cited along the road would be pulled down to ensure the project's success.
The MCE, accompanied by planners and engineers from the Assembly, also inspected works on other roads, including the “scrap road,” a popular alternative route to the market.
Additionally, work is expected to be completed on a bridge connecting the Ho Central Market, addressing concerns that have led to several demonstrations.
Mr. Bosson shared his initiative to open up roads in the Municipality, and he revealed that over two kilometers of roads would be completed within nine months, costing GH₵6.6 million sourced from the Third Installment of the World Bank's Urban Development Grant.
The projects, managed by First Sky and Openya Construction Ltd, aim to enhance infrastructure and connectivity in the Ho Municipality.
