The delays in the construction of the Dorongo-Tindonmolgo road are of great concern to the Assemblyman of the Dorongo Electoral Area in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region, Martin Adongo Agaare.

The road stretches from the first turn behind Fountain Gate Chapel, Desert Pastures, through Tindonmolgo and then connecting to Dorongo and Sherigu.

The delays attributed to the construction of the road, according to Mr. Agaare means residents and commuters have to struggle with the dusty and bumpy nature of the road. 

Mr. Agaare said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Region today, March 15, 2023. 

“When they [the contractor] came, they started from the Tindonmolgo side. Our place wasn’t spoiled like that but the Tindonmolgo area was completely destroyed. Their aim was to ensure that that area was accessible. But even now, after you cross the bridge headed to my area, that area is also now destroyed,” he said. 

The road is expected to be tarred, but the contractor has been unable to deal with basic regraveling of the road, a cause for concern according to Mr. Agaare. 

“It is terrible. It is supposed to begin at Desert Pastures and extend all the way to the water reservoir before connecting my area to the Sherigu road. So from Desert pastures to my place, it is supposed to be tarred.”

“From where I sit, I think the contractor should be doing more. He should do more because it is long overdue,” he said. 

Mr. Agaare was however worried about the unnecessary speed motorists use on the road.

“As much as we need these roads, we should also begin to do things consciously. I say this because if you overspeed like this, even when it is only gravel, if the road is gravelled, what kind of speed would we be seeing?”

The Assemblyman for Dorongo explained that he had followed up and shared concerns about the delays on the road with the Upper East Regional Director of the Urban Roads Department.
