GIC, a local Ghanaian company, were bidding to sign contracts with the Ministry of Roads and Highways of Ghana to construct 5.8km of storm drainage along the Lamashiegu Nalung-Bulpela Tamale road, in addition to the rehabilitation and reconstruction of 56km of selected roads within the Ashanti region in central Ghana.
