Work has begun on the dredging of the Kpetoe River to help solve the perennial flooding of parts of Kpetoe township, the capital of Agotime Ziope District.

The three-kilometre project is currently underway.

Mr. John Kwaku Amenyah, Agotime Ziope District Chief Executive (DCE) who disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency at Kpetoe on Monday said the project was expected to be completed in two weeks.

“The completion of this project will bring relief to the people as it will put to rest their horrid annual displacement and destruction of their properties”, he said.

The DCE said work had also resume on the construction of a culvert on River Akwetey, which has been stalled since 2008 and was also expected to be completed before the rain sets in this year.

He said the project when completed would link Agorhokpo and its surrounding villages, which hitherto were cut off from the rest of the District and marketing centres.

Mr. Amenyah said it would also enhance access to health and other public facilities and hope they would be completed on schedule.
