The Madina astroturf in the La-Nkwatang Municipal Assembly of the Greater Accra Region is gradually taking shape as the contractor, Wembley Sports Company has vowed to meet the deadline for the construction.
The artificial turf is one of the flagship programmes of the Ministry of Inner City and Zongo Development (MICZD) headed by Alhaji Abubakar Saddique Boniface, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Madina constituency also in the Greater Accra Region.
The Madina artificial turf forms part of the construction of two other artificial turfs in the Kyebi area of the Eastern Region and Walewale in the Northern Region.
A tour of the facility in the Madina over the week end indicates that the facility is gradually coming alive as planned by the Ministry.
The company working on the project has so far constructed four of such artificial pitches at Kotobabi, Dzorwulu, Accra Academy and Nungua all in the Greater Accra Region.
The contractor has begun laying the carpet to pave way for the mounting of the poles among others.
