Secondi Takoradi Metropolitan forms part of twenty two (22) Metropolitan, Municipalities and Districts in the Western Region of Ghana. The Administrative Capital of the Metropolitan is Sekondi. This makes it the smallest, but easily the most highly developed. Indeed, it is the third largest metropolis in the whole of Ghana. Close to Takoradi Polytechnic, the Konsaworado flows towards the Buthia lagoon, creating an extensive, beautiful marshland. The Essei lagoon lies between Ekuase and Takoradi. It is located on the coast, about 200km west of Accra. The Metropolitan shares boundaries with Shama District to the east, to the north with Mpohor District, to thewest with Ahanta West District and to the south with Gulf of Guinea.
The Western Regional Co-ordinating Council and the Regional Project Co-ordinating Unit on Thursday visited a number of project sites within the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolitan Area to ascertain progress of work.
