The Municipal Chief Executive Tours Lapaz Footbridge Project Site

Honorable Boye Laryea, the Municipal Chief Executive of Okaikwei North Municipality toured the construction site of the pedestrian footbridge at Lapaz on 13th July 2023.

The tour is to afford the MCE the opportunity to have first-hand information about the challenges of the contractor on site. This follows separate community engagements with the traders at Abeka and Lapaz on Tuesday.

Leading a team of Management, Staff of the Assembly and Police Personnel and some Assembly members to the site Wednesday morning, Honorable Laryea reiterated his earlier call for the hawkers to give way for the speedy execution of the project. He therefore asked the drivers to move their cars effective today.

He assured the traders and the commercial drivers that they will in the interim be relocated to a safer place while the project takes off. He also tasked the drivers union to come for the Assembly’s stickers for identification purposes.

The construction of the pedestrian footbridge is expected to end the era of pedestrian knockdowns by motorists on the George Walker Bush Highway also known as the N1 Highway.
