|THE MAYOR INPECTING THE LEGON PUMP SITE|
The BRT is a bus-based mass transit system expected to deliver fast, comfortable and cost-effective urban mobility, through the provision of exclusive right-of-way lanes.
“We needed to relocate the ECG cables to a more suitable place in order not to interrupt the construction and the finishing process of the road and this took a while,” the Resident Engineer, Mr Michael Lear, explained.

The visit was to inspect the work done on the projects and to also know when it would be appropriate to open the sites for public use.

“The only thing left for us to do now is to erect street lights, complete the drainage systems and pedestrian walkway, fix rails to support the edges of the road and lay the asphalt,” he said.
Mr Vanderpuije in his remarks urged them to quicken the process of construction and also put in place some management activities to help control the traffic on the road.
At the Legon Treatment Plant, work was 94 per cent complete and was being used to collect sewage from the University of Ghana (UG), Legon.
The Project Director, Mr Oben Nyarko, expressed optimism that the plant would be opened and handed over to the AMA by the end of September this year to serve other communities in the area.
“We are now left with the planting of grasses along the sewage in order to contain the odour and also produce fresh air around the area,” he added.
