At long last series of reportage by The New Trust (TNT,) Newspaper about the deplorable
Road network of Adidwan-Atonsuagya within Asante Mampong Municipality especially the collapsed bridge has finally gotten attention.
Even though, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Mampong,Hon Appiah Kubi’s promised that the road had been awarded on contract and the contractor was expected on site somewhere in July this year but that promised turned up to be false.
In what seem to be good news this time round to the Atonsuagya ,a predominately cocoa and maize growing community,Ghana Cocoa Board has captured the aforementioned road among others within Mampong municipality under its Cocoa roads project.
This paper has intercepted a letter to that effect dated 30th September, 2020 with reference number GCB/DFR/SS/AR-BREN/v.1/l which was address to The Managing Director of Black Lick Ghana Limited ,Accra.
