The Ho Municipal chief executive (MCE), Divine Bosson, has said that urban roads in the municipality will be given a facelift from next month (May).
Bosson visited some project sites when he toured the municipality on 21 April.
He stated that untarred roads will be tarred and deplorable roads will be rehabilitated.
The MCE and his team, including the municipal maintenance engineer, Gershon Bannerman, visited the Ziavi-Ho main road which has had potholes repaired, the Ho-Godokpoe road where two culverts are being constructed, and the Captain Nfodjo road, where speed ramps are being constructed.
He said, a 2.45-kilometre road from the 66 Military Regiment through New Town to Kpenoe will be constructed. Other roads include the School of Hygiene-Ho Central Cemetery road, GOIL-Charcoal Market road and OLA SHS-Scrap road will also be constructed.
All the roads will be constructed using the Urban Development Grant Three.
The MCE has urged the heads of departments in the municipal assembly to stay committed to their mandates to help achieve this objective.
Speaking on town planning and physical structures, Bosson urged residents to obtain permits from the assembly before undertaking developmental projects including buildings.
He stressed that, obtaining permits will address the problem of siting buildings in waterways, flood-prone areas and unauthorised locations.
Bosson cautioned that the assembly will be quick to demolish projects sited at unauthorised places in order to prevent disasters.
The MCE promised to rebuild Ho in 2021 when he was confirmed as the MCE. He is committed to this promise.
