Bawumia begs for Chinese support to dualise Adenta-Dodowa road

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President, has begged the Chinese government to expedite the dualization of the Adenta-Dodowa road as part of the Sinohydro project.

The heavy traffic on that stretch has prompted locals in that section of the Greater Accra region to call for a dualized route to relieve the congestion.

Dr. Bawumia said the dualization of the Adenta-Dodowa route will offer relief during the sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of 100 km of inner-city roadways under the Sinohydro project in Kumasi.

“You know that there is one project which I have been calling you [the Chinese Ambassador] virtually every day about. That is in Greater Accra because the people of Greater Accra have been disturbing me about it, which is the Adenta Dodowa dualization.”

“I am hoping that with your help, we will get that project started for the people between Adenta and Dodowa,” the Vice President said.

The Vice President’s office had anticipated starting construction on the route by the end of 2021.

In September 2018, the government signed a $2 billion Master Project Support Agreement with the Chinese state-run Sinohydro Corporation Limited in order to address the country’s significant infrastructure deficit.

Sinohydro, a hydroelectric engineering and construction company, would finance and build infrastructure projects across Ghana in exchange for access to bauxite mining areas.

The Atiwa forest was then designated as a place for the Chinese firm to exploit for the next 15 years.
