The first phase of the project, which includes 312 housing units, also has a fully furnished clinic, school block for JHS and Primary, police mobile maintenance unit, police station, fuel depot, and garage will go a long way in reducing the accommodation challenges facing the police
The Second phase will see the construction of 192 housing units, taking the total number to 504 housing units.
President Akufo-Addo is expected to commission yet another major project undertaken by his government as part of measures aimed at addressing the accommodation needs of the Ghana Police Service
The project, developed by Unique Development Company, is a land swap agreement between the Lands and Natural Resources Ministry, Lands Commission, Ministry of Interior, Ghana Police Service, Ghana Atomic Energy Commission and the private developer.
During one of the inspections, a Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Benito Owusu Bio said the agreement was reached when government realised that the Police Service was in urgent need of accommodation, which also fell in line with the government’s plan to build Morden Barracks for the security services as their numbers kept increasing by the day.
He indicated that the construction began in 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the progress was interrupted and almost halted
The Deputy Minister explained that the project also includes a 10 Unit, 2 bedroom accommodation for the engineering and mechanic department of the Service with offices, canteens, and a police post to ensure their safety.
The Deputy Minister clarified that the project has also relocated the residents of the Ghana Airport Company and the Meteorological Service at Jubilee Enclave to pave the way for the construction of the Jubilee City Project.
