Seventy km of the 117.94km Bolgatanga-Polimakom road project has been completed and opened to traffic.
The 117.94km project runs through the Bolgatanga Central, Bolgatanga East, Nabdam, Zebilla, Binduri, Bawku Central and Pusiga constituencies.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as part of his tour of the Upper East Region last Friday inspected the progress of work on the road.
The project includes the construction of three new bridges at the Kulaa River at Bolga (30% completed), the Red Volta River at Tilli (80% completed) and the White Volta River at Kobore (yet to start).
In addition, two by-passes will be built at Bawku (15 km) and Pusiga (6.9km).
