Volta Lake Transport Enhancement Project

The Volta Lake Transport Enhancement Project is also a project being implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport. The rationale behind the project is to find effective solutions to the frequent boat disasters that occur on the Volta Lake and make travelling on the Lake attractive, pleasant and a wonderful experience.

The Project involves the training and positioning of Lifeguards at strategic points along the Volta Lake to ensure safe practices and rapid rescue response to save lives and property. It also involves the provision of life jackets for lake users and speed boats for patrolling.

So far 2,500 lifeguards have been recruited, trained by the Navy and deployed to execute their mandate at their respective bases
