Radiance Petroleum Limited constructs culvert at Opeikuma

Radiance Petroleum Limited (RPL) has constructed a culvert over the Okurudu Stream at Opeikuma in the Awutu Senya East Municipality to facilitate the flow of the stream at the cost of GH600,000.00.

A 1600-metre drain to the stream had also been dredged for the free flow of water to prevent the perennial flooding in the area, which had been a major concern for the residents.

The RPL handed over the project to the Awutu Senya East Assembly to coincide with its Fuel Station’s fifth anniversary at Opeikuma.

Mr Emmanuel Pobee, the General Manager, in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the gesture forms part of their corporate social responsibility, to reduce the plight of the people during rainy seasons.

It said: When the initial cost of the project was valued at GH600,000.00, we were just three years in operations and thought it was too huge for us to carry but we told ourselves that we have to do this to support this community we find ourselves.

Anytime it rained there was serious problems and inconveniences for those living here, so we told them that we would see to the issue and tackle it in the best possible way, and today we have handed it over to the community the completed culvert.

Mr Michael Mensah, the Municipal Chief Executive for Awutu Senya East commended RPL for their support to the community and said it would go a long way to ease the flooding and traffic congestion on the main Kasoa road.
