The rest are the construction of subsidized household toilets, sandcrete fence walls for Redemption School, Tema Rahammiya Islamic School, Tema Community 8 No 2&3, Tema Community 1 Presby primary, Oninku Drive 1&2 Primary, Nii Adjetey Ansah Memorial JHS, Manhean Primary & JHS, TMA Manhean Methodist Basic, St. Peter’s Catholic Basic and Manhean SDA schools among others.
The Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Tema, Mr. Felix Mensah Anang-La, who made this known when delivering his address during the first ordinary meeting of the first session of TMA on Tuesday, noted that these infrastructural projects had become possible through the diligent application of funds from the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF), Internally Generated Funds (IGF), GetFund and support from the Ghana Secondary Cities Support Program (GSCSP).
He expressed excitement that works were steadily progressing on most roads including the Community 9 Light Industrial Area road as well as the Community 12 local road projects.
The MCE announced that an extra 5.1km of local roads in Tema Manhean and Abrewankor had also been awarded on contract for construction to immediately commence, adding that contract has been given for the expansion of the road linking the port to the motorway via the Tema General Hospital Road from two lanes to eight lanes.
