Concerns are being raised by residents of Bortianor, Redtop and Westhills City over the construction works of Chinese firm, Sunda Ghana Limited.
The residents have told Joy News that the deep-ground construction works of the Chinese-owned company is causing artificial earthquakes and earth tremors.
“In the course of their construction works, they have been blasting a rocky area which used to be a stone quarry, in an apparent attempt to level the ground for construction works to begin,” he said in a press statement, dated June 13.
“Buildings are cracking, walls are being weakened, fear and panic being caused to residents of especially WESTHILLS CITY.”
Meanwhile, all efforts by residents to get authorities halt construction works have proven futile.
