The members after touring the constructional site expressed appreciation about the progress of work and expressed the hope that the contractor would be able to finish the work on schedule.
The Chairman, Mr Isaac Kwame Asiamah for instance said he was particularly happy that the facility was being developed for it to be disability friendly such that physically challenged persons could be able to access all parts of the stadium on their own.
Mr Stephano Ramaella, Managing Director of Consar Limited, contractors of the project said all concrete works at the stadium would be completed by the end of April.
He said his outfit was currently having problems with cement with the recent hikes in the price.
“We have been buying cement at 95,000 cedis and 100,000 cedis every week.”
He said because of the price they have been buying in smaller quantities of 50 and 100 bags every week with the hope that the price would return to normalcy.
He said he has spoken with an importer to supply them with cement in case the situation does not improve so as to be able to complete the project on time.
He said the project was ahead of time and was scheduled to complete on time.
He said the stadium has now been designed to have four dressing rooms, an elevator at the VIP lounge, and four masts to host 300 bulbs, 75 on each mast to serve as flood lights.
Grassing of the playing field has commenced and Mr Ramella said the equipment for the tartan tracks has also arrived and would soon been constructed.
The VIP stand has also been designed to take a capacity of 5000 people as compared to the previous one which took only about 2000.
