The Ministry of Roads and Highways has announced temporary traffic management control measures on the Tema Motorway Grade Separated intersection which will take effect on 2nd October. This is to ensure smooth execution of the 2nd phase of the construction of the Tema motorway.
A statement issued and signed by the Public Affairs Division of the Ghana Highway Authority, advised motorists travelling from Accra towards Afienya and Akosombo to keep to the outer lane and exit onto the Harbour Road, then move to the left lane and make a U-turn after passing the pedestrian bridge to merge with traffic coming from Tema.
Motorists travelling from Tema to Accra are also to keep to the left lane and go across the flyover then execute the U-turn on the Akosombo Afienya road to merge with the oncoming traffic.
Motorists going from Aflao and Dawenya to Tema are also to stay in the right lane towards Akosombo Afienya road, then execute a U-turn on the Akosombo Afienya road after going past the pedestrian bridge to merge with oncoming traffic.
For motorists going from Akosombo and Afienya to Dawenya and Aflao they are to keep to the left towards Tema Harbour and straight through the intersection, then execute the U-turn on the Harbour Road after the pedestrian bridge to merge with oncoming traffic.
The statement advises motorists travelling from Accra to Aflao and Aflao to Accra to stay in the left lane, using the underpass.
All motorists are advised to adhere strictly to these new measures.
