Ada Sea Defense Project 30 Pct Complete

According to the Ghana Nation, work on the 60 million euro Ada Sea Defense project scheduled to be completed in December 2013, is about 30 percent ready.

Contractors for the project, Dredging International have already procured all materials including armor rocks, gravel and scour material to ensure a speedy completion of the project.

Work is expected to resume in July.

The Ada Sea Defense project has become necessary due to increasing erosion along the coast of Ada.

Minister for Water Resources, Works and Housing, Enoch Teye Mensah who paid a working visit to the project site, expressed optimism about the economic potential of the project.

He said the sea defense project, will stabilize the Ada coast and encourage the production of salt for export, noting the salt industry is worth an estimated 10 billion dollars.

When completed, the Ada sea defense project will be 15 kilometers long and 3.5 feet high.
