Bole Bamboi Road Attracts New Transport Services

New transport companies such as the O.A Tour are locating in the Upper West Regional capital, Wa, putting fleet of vehicles on the roads enhancing competition and sanity in the transport sector.

This followed the tarring (on-going) of the 53-kilometre Bole-Bamboi road, which linked the region to the southern part of the country.

Mr. Nuhu Mahama, the Regional Industrial Relations Officer of Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), in an interview with the GNA at Wa, commended the contractor working on the road for the speed at which the project was being executed.

He also praised the government for initiating the project saying: "We must give praises when it is due" and urged President John Agyekum Kufuor to ensure that the project was completed during his tenure of office.

Mr. Mahama gave the assurance that the Union would complement government’s efforts by implementing its programmes but said that should not be misconstrued to mean that the Union was an appendage of the New Patriotic Party administration.

He said "politics or religion is not entertained in the activities of the Union."

Mr. Mahama urged the youth including women, especially those from the Upper West , Upper East and the Northern Regions to develop interest in driving, saying it was a noble profession, which was not exclusive for men alone.

He said if more women joined the profession, the carnage on the roads would be minimised since women were more careful than their male counterparts.

Some passengers who spoke to the GNA said they now have a choice to make unlike previously when they were always cramped in GPRTU buses to their destinations to transact businesses.

Other passengers and some drivers told the GNA that the government had done a good job by tarring the road, which if completed would facilitate the movement of goods and people from the region to the southern part of the country.
