Mayor admonish drivers to corporate with Contracta Construction on a road closure.
The Kumasi Mayor, Mr. Samuel Pyne has urged leadership of the GPRTU and other driver unions to as a matter of urgency corporate with the builders of the New Central Market, Contracta Construction UK Limited in their bid to block part of the road to ensure smooth movement of materials.
Mr. Samuel Pyne who was speaking to a gathering of Ghana Private Road Transport Union members said, it was very urgent for drivers to corporate with the construction firm in its quest to use one side of the road from the Kumasi Racecourse straight to the working site at the central market.
According to him, that is the only way through which the construction firm can transport its building materials from the Racecourse to the project site at a fastest and smoothness pace.
The Contracta Construction UK Limited in its quest to transport materials from its stored centre at the Racecourse to the new Central Market project site has intended to use one whole side of the road direct to the project site to ensure quick work.
Mr. Samuel Pyne in conclusion however expressed worry over how some unstationed (trotro’) drivers fail to join any of the drivers association. He called on the GPRTU and other driver unions to corporate with the KAM to help get those recalcitrant to a drivers’ union.
On his part, Project Liaiason officer for the Contracta Construction Limited, Mr. Emmanuel Danso said the company is going to position flagged workers who are going to direct the movement of the the various drivers during the process.
