Work on the Volta Regional Youth Resource Center is racing behind time as the 9-month stipulated time frame given by government can’t be attained.
The project which was announced to have a December 2018 completion deadline is still under construction with barely two months to end the year.
A visit to the construction site revealed only 45 per cent of total work done. The youth center which came as a blessing to the people of the region after a total neglect of the present Ho sports stadium is currently far from its realisation.
Project manager, Mr. Williams Akpih attributed the delay in work to the topography of the land and heavy downpours.
“The rains have been our challenge; the ground is such that when it rains no vehicles comes in which means no work goes on. This is the nature of the ground here.”
He further said the company must recourse to leveling the ground with quarry products to make the construction site accessible by both vehicles and human.
“We have to resort to other means of getting the ground conducive for work. We used query products to fill the tarries and this took a lot of time.”
He however assured that the facility will be ready by February 2019.
Meanwhile, during the sod cutting, the Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa echoed his readiness to see the project completed on time and further urged the contractor, Togbui Gbewoaza II of Wilkado Construction Company Limited to ensure the project was completed as scheduled to the specifications as spelt out in the contract document.
