“The road connects the Bono Region to Akomadan in the Ashanti Region, joining the main Kumasi Techiman road at Akomadan through mainly agricultural towns and villages. The proposed 40.4km section to be reconstructed is in advanced state of deterioration,” he stated.

He said this has led to high vehicle operating costs, dust pollution in the settlements, road accidents and low utilization of the main road in terms of traffic volumes.
