Repair works on Spintex road pipeline cost GHC 1 Million

fdfdfdfsfAn ongoing emergency repair works on the Ghana Water Company’s major 600ml water transmission line to Accra along the Spintex underpass road, will cost the country a whopping GHC 1 Million, kasapafmonline.com is reliably informed.

The works are extremely necessary to enable the restoration of water supply to the surrounding communities such as Baatsona, East Legon and Spintex among others, as well as prevent possible caving in of the road, arising from the leakage of the pipelines

The repair works has resulted in temporal closure of the Spintex road underpass into East Legon.

Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Water Resources works and Housing, Samuel Yaw Adusei in an interview with Kasapa FM’s Daakyehene Ofosu Agyeman at the site, stated that his outfit initially didn’t know the magnitude of the leakage until the ground was during the renovation.

“If we did not attend to the situation timely, the whole area would have been flooded and motorists would have been affected. Before we started, we thought it was a small part of the pipeline that had corroded, but when we dug the ground we realized that about 80% of the pipeline had to be replaced. We are now replacing the damaged pipeline with HDPE pipe which is very durable to stop the leakage.”

He noted that barring any unforseen circumstances, the repair works which is being carried out with support from the Department of Urban Roads should be done by close of day and the underpass road opened to traffic.
