THE Greater Accra Regional Minister, Nii Laryea Afotey-Agbo, has toured  the capital to acquaint himself with ongoing  projects in the city.

The tour, organised by the AMA, was also to introduce the regional minister to other officials working to improve conditions in the city and to expose him to the environmental issues.

Some of the project sites visited included; the One Way traffic road on the Asafioatse Netty road, and the Kantamanto road,  Lavender Hill, Mampoase drains roads and street lights, and the Millennium City Schools.

Others are the Abossey Okai,Darkuman, Sakaman and the Osu storm drains, Lapaz lorry Station and the Akweteman roads.

The rest are the Kotobabi Abavana toilet facility, West Legon Liquid Waste Treatment Plant, and the East Legon community roads, and the distribution of refuse bins to the residents of the Pig farm community.

At the Lavender hill in Ablekuma South, the Mayor reiterated that plans were far advanced to build six anaerobic digesters to treat waste into organic waste which would be ready by June this year.

He said the digesters would marginally help reduce problems with odours, pathogens and green house gas emissions from animal waste or sewerage sluge and also turn sewerage treatment plants and animal waste on farms into manure.

At  Mampoasi in the Ablekuma Sub-metro, a 14 kilometre (km) road has been constructed with 28km roadside drains. Also, 250 streetlights and pipe born water has been installed in the community.

The Salvation and the Mamprobi Millennium City School are about 80 per cent complete while the Kotobabi Abavana Cluster of Schools is still under construction and when completed, would help eliminate the shift system.

The minister also inaugurated the Kotobabi Ababvana toilet for the schoolchildren and distributed 500 plastic refuse bins to the residents of the Pig Farm community.

At the West Ayawaso district, the minister inspected the construction of the West Legon Liquid Waste Treatment Plant aimed to solve the sewerage problems in Accra.

Contractors said the project when completed would serve the University of Ghana, Legon Presbyterian Boys School, and the Institute of Professional Studies (IPS) and in future include Haasto, East and West Legon, Okponglo and Madina.

The project is however about 70 per cent complete and comprises Sewerage Treatment Ponds, Sewers, and the Sewerage Pump Stations.

At the Korle Klottey constituency, the Member of Parliament (MP), Mr Nii Armah Ashiety, thanked the AMA for the construction of the storm drain which has reduced flooding in the vicinity during downpours.

He said this was a prove of the government’s commitment to provide better living conditions to Ghanaians under the Better Ghana Agenda saying, “  Others have been in power for eight years but have not been able to achieve what we have done in four years.”

The Accra Mayor, Mr Alfred Vanderpuji, in his remarks thanked the various contractors of the projects for their effort in bringing to light the Millenium City Dream of the government
