Bitumen overlay of The Berekum Ring Road Under The Sinohydro Project has begun as contractors do over 60% of the work.

Berekum roads have been a matter of concern for the citizenry as most of them had been in a deplorable state for a long time.

Luckily for the municipality, rigorous work began in 2020 after a series of interventions by the Berekumman Citizens Association, The Chiefs, MPs, Municipal and District Assemblies of Berekum, and pressure groups such as Berekum Youth for Accountability.

The Sinohydro project, which seeks to exchange Ghana’s bauxite with infrastructure projects valued at about 2 billion dollars, saw Berekum as a beneficiary under lot 6 with Sunyani Municipality. Lot 6 contains 36 Km of roads, Berekum gets 10 km.

The vice president of the republic, Dr Bawumia, cut sod for the commencement of the project in September 2020. Work had since progressed steadily but took a downturn due to the COVID-19 situation early last year.

Work, however, picked up quite rigorously this year. Bitumen overlay commenced last week from the Berekum-Mpatapo link. Work is progressing steadily.

The 10km of roads will see the ring road of Berekum asphalted. The ring road runs from the Berekum Nyame Nnaa ye junction close to Berekum Senior High School, crossing the Berekum-Senase Road through New Biadan crossing the Berekum-Biadan Road, passing behind The Holy Family Hospital staff quarters, passing in front of Akab school Complex crossing the Berekum- Dormaa Road through Alawa junction connecting Continental by crossing the Berekum- Jamdede road. It continues through continental area to cross the Mpatasie road, passing close to All For Christ Church to connect the Kutre No. 2 road, and crosses the Berekum-Mpatapo Road. It then continues through Kyiribaa then connects to the Berekum-Kato Road.
