Africa-Press – Ghana. The Ankasa Forest Reserve road in the Jomoro Constituency of the Western Region is receiving a reshaping by the Member of Parliament, Dorcas Affo-Toffey.

The eight-kilometer road has not seen any coal tar since construction several decades ago.

The reshaping of the road would serve nearby communities such as Amokwawsuazo, Fire, “Odo y3 f3“, Paradise and French-Man.

The rest of the communities are Mfante New Town, Anhweafutukrom, Anhweafutu Junction and New Ankasa.

Residents struggle to transport goods to markets due to the inaccessible road.

Farming is the main occupation for the inhabitants.

The Ankasa Forest Reserve in Ghana has historical significance and supports government revenue through eco-tourism and forestry practices but its accessibility is hampered by the poor condition of the road, dissuading tourists and affecting local farming economic activities.

Located in the Elubo Zone of the Region, it is a tourist site where government generates revenue from to contribute to the national GDP.

Despite governmental awareness of the state of the road, no action has been taken to address this issue.

The situation becomes worse when it rains as the means of transport is halted due to the muddy nature of the road.

The only vehicle that could commute through the road during rain is an old Land Rover vehicle, which sometimes get stuck in the mud.

The MP, Dorcas Affo-Toffey, has therefore initiated the efforts to reshape and repair the road.

The aim is to alleviate hardships on commuters, tourists and farmers.

The Assembly Member for Solanim Electoral Area, Ebenezer Adjei, said the road was in deplorable state but they cried to the MP for help.

He said they are optimistic the MP would construct the road properly should she win again to represent the people of Jomoro in Parliament.

Some of the residents expressed gratitude to the MP, saying several dignitaries use the road due to the Ankasa Forest but no efforts have been made to construct it, until the MP came.

They said they have reported the state of the road to the municipal chief executive and other executives but nothing has been done about it, but the MP has come to their aid.
