Foot Bridge Across The Sunyani-Kumasi Highway

Ghana Highways Authority to construct a foot bridge across the Sunyani-Kumasi highway in front of the University

Foot Bridge Across The Sunyani-Kumasi Highway

The Pro Vice-Chancellor of Sunyani Technical University, Dr. J. S. Korantwi-Barimah has appealed to the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Lawyer Asumah-Cheremeh to as a matter of urgency impress upon the Ghana Highways Authority to construct a foot bridge across the Sunyani-Kumasi highway in front of the University to prevent the frequent knock-down of students when crossing the road to and from the university.

He was speaking in an interview on GTV Life Morning Show from Sunyani on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. He said, the appeal was made during a courtesy call on the minister in his office by the University Management to welcome him on his assumption to office as Brong Ahafo Regional Minister.

He said the university is concerned about the frequent knock-down of students who attempt crossing the highway, adding that drivers have been ignoring the traffic lights even when it has signaled the stop sign.

Dr. Korantwi-Barimah said a similar appeal was made to the former president, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama during the commissioning of the state of the art four-storey building containing lecture halls and offices at the university in Sunyani. The president promised to see to the construction of the foot bridge but because of the change in government after the 2016 elections that promise could not be fulfilled.

  2. Salancrete Building Blocks From A Mixture Of Sand, Laterite And Cement For Sustainable Housing Construction In Ghana

    This paper assesses the suitability of Salancrete block – mixture of sand, laterite and cement – for urban housing delivery in Ghana. Three Salancrete blocks were moulded from four lateritic soil samples obtained from Fiapre, Magazine, Kotokrom and S-Poly, all in the Sunyani Municipality. Also, three blocks each were moulded for sandcrete and landcrete (laterite and cement), using 10% cement content in each case. The 28-day compressive strength values were 5.76, 3.78 and 3.09 N/mm2 for Salancrete, Sandcrete and Landcrete respectively. It was concluded that combining laterite and sand will produce a more suitable block input for sustainable housing delivery in Ghana.

  3. Towards A Sustainable Ceramic Industry In Ghana: An Assessment Of The Working Environment Using Five Forces Industrial Model

    This paper discussed ceramics as an industry that is capable of improving Ghana’s economy and providing direct and indirect employment, and penetrating the international market. The working environments of the companies within the local industry were analysed using the Porter’s Five Forces Industrial Model which revealed that the Ghanaian Ceramic Companies are competitively weak in the areas of exports, and not able to compete favourably with new entrants, although, strong in the area of raw materials and resource inputs. Study showed that the challenges within the industry can be nipped in the bud if academia, industry and government work indivisibly.
