Minister of Highways applauds First Sky Construction Ltd

First Sky Construction Limited has played a significant role in the construction of roads, and Minister of Roads and Highways Kwasi Amoako-Attah praised the company and said it deserves recognition on a global scale.

He made these remarks while touring the construction company’s 23-kilometre Dome-Kitase Road project, which is currently underway.

After the tour, the Minister briefly addressed the media and expressed his admiration for the way the work was coming along, saying that First Sky Construction Ltd. was on par with any top-tier construction company in the world given the level of top-notch tools and resource mobilisation he had seen.

He added that feedback from his private briefings with technical engineers from the Ministry up to the level of the Chief Director indicated that the construction was done as it was intended.

The 23-kilometre Dome-Kitase Road project is expected to be finished in 24 months, but First Sky Construction Limited, the company in charge of the project, has promised that it will be finished in 14 months.

According to Eric Seddy Kutortse, Chairman of the company that provided the assurance, it will work diligently day and night to facilitate human and vehicular movement without compromising the quality and integrity of the project.

“We are currently one and a half months into the project’s 24-month duration. During an inspection, Mr. Kutortse assured Kwasi Amoako-Attah, Minister of Roads and Highways, “With the pace at which we are going, we are sure that we will deliver this project within 14 months, and within 14 months we will have it done.

Kwesi Amoako-Attah signed a contract for the 23-kilometer Dome-Kitase Road’s rehabilitation with First Sky Limited, a local Accra construction firm.

The $35 million project will begin in the Greater Accra Region at the Dome Roundabout and conclude in the Eastern Region near Peduase at Kitase.

The exercise is anticipated to begin in August 2022 and is expected to be finished in 24 months, according to a notice posted on the ministry’s official Facebook page on Wednesday, July 6, 2022.

The project begins in the Greater Accra Region at the Dome Roundabout and ends in the Eastern Region at Kitase.

According to the ministry, the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED) and the Government of Ghana are funding the Project, which is expected to cost $35 million.

It continued, “The Road will act as a detour to the Peduase and Akuapem enclave and one of the most esteemed universities in the nation, the Ashesi University.

Just two months after the project started, Kutortse stated during the ministerial tour that it had completed 97 percent of all land clearing and had completed 15 percent of the filling and excavation and cut to formation.

In addition, he said that 3 percent of 600*600mm U-drains and 41% of pipe culverts had been built. Scarification and formation were 16 percent finished.
