AngloGold Ashanti Obuasi mine has commissioned a 1.4-kilometer concrete pavement road it reconstructed at Nhyieso on the Obuasi-Dunkwa highway.

For some time now, the newly reconstructed road has been in a very bad state, posing safety risks to motorists and pedestrians.

As a result, AngloGold Ashanti, in consultation with the Department of Urban Roads decided to refurbish the dilapidated section with concrete pavement to ensure safer and more efficient transportation for businesses, travelers, and community residents.

Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, the Senior Manager Sustainability of the company, Mr. Emmanuel Baidoo, expressed delight with the successful completion of the reconstructed road project.

“This milestone achievement underscores AngloGold Ashanti Obuasi mine’s commitment to its 10-year Socio-Economic Development Plan, which prioritizes improving communities’ infrastructure to bridge gaps and address critical needs of the communities in which it operates”.

Mr. Baidoo expressed gratitude to the traditional and local authorities, the contractor, the Obuasi Mine Project team, and community members along the Obuasi-Dunkwa highway for their cooperation, expertise, and support throughout the reconstruction process.

The Chief Executive for Obuasi Municipality, Mr. Elijah Adansi Bonah, noted that the level of deterioration on that stretch was massive and commended the company for swiftly coming in to save the situation with the concrete Pavement.

The Odikro of Nhyieso, Nana Peprah Abu Bonsra, said pregnant women who need to go to antenatal clinic at Obuasi could not stand the ordeal they had to go through while crossing the much-deteriorated part of the road and commended the company for coming to the aid of both drivers and the general public.
