Parts of the Fumbisi-Kanjarga roads have been gravelled. This means that residents who ply the route would be able to do so with relative ease.
While the roads still needs a lot of work, the current development would ease the stress of the residents.
This is according to the Presiding Member of th Builsa South District Assembly, John Apaabey. He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.
“It isn’t in the best of states but it is better than before,” he said. The regraveling of the road, according to Mr. Apaabey, is strategic. This is because it would facilitate the easy access of residents in the area to the Fumbisi market.
“The Assembly in its own way, we felt that we would never have resources but we can always sacrifice to do one thing at a time. So we had to pick a whole set of the Common Fund and sink that unto the Kajarga road and regravel some of the most dangerous spots and work on some of the area.”
“I must commend the Kajarga chief who led the communal labour,” he added.
According to the PM, the road received its only major upgradement sometime in 1998.
It would be recalled that DCE for the area, Daniel Kwame Gariba ahead of the graveling of the road explained, “for every district to develop through its revenue mobilization, [there must be] access to roads. So, the assembly thought it wise to commit resources to shape this road. It will help not only the people but also the assembly. And I must say that the chief and his elders should be acknowledged in this part. They are always on us to fix the road and we are doing just that.”
