$43.65m for Airports Rehabilitation 2/9/2007
THE KUMASI, Takoradi and the Tamale airports are to be refurbished to international standards by the end of this year for the Confederation of African Football tournament (CAN 2008) to be held in Ghana.

With these objectives, the Ministry of Aviation has tabled a proposal before cabinet for approval for the commencement of the project.

Speaking on Peace FM, an Accra based radio station yesterday, the Minister of Aviation, Madam Gloria Akuffo said the rehabilitation of the three airports would cost government US$43.65 million.

She said the Takoradi airport rehabilitation would cost US$17.55 million while that of Kumasi would be US$13.6 million. US$12.5 million is earmarked for the Tamale airport project.

On the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), the Minister said the third phase of the KIA project would continue.

The Minister was reacting to a report from Kumasi that the airport was without water and lights to guide aircraft to land on the runway.

She stressed that temporary rehabilitation would be more expensive as it would not last.
