Before the end of the year, the road from the Upper East Regional Office of the DVLA to the newly opened fueling station on the Bolgatanga-Bawku road in the Bolgatanga East District of the Upper East Region will be properly lit. This is according to the DCE for the area, David Amoah.
When he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, Mr. Amoah explained that the streetlights along the road to and from Kulaa bridge and the timber market would only be installed once construction of the bridge is finished.
According to the DCE, contractors of the road have taken up the task to provide street lights on the highway. This removes the cost burden from the Assembly.
The portion of the road from the office of the DVLA to the fueling station would be tackled by the Assembly.
“The DVLA junction up to the nursing training area was dark but now, when you get there, it is on. We have worked on it. Between the DVLA and the new fueling station, we do not have poles on that stretch.”
“I have bought some poles. We also have streetlights in stock. It is left with the contractor to go there and assess how many poles we would need so that we can plant the poles and put the lights on them. So that we can brighten that area. That is the plan for now,” he said.
All of this could be done before the end of the year, the DCE said.
