The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Monday, October 26, cut the sod for the commencement of work on the 64-kilometre Ashaiman to Akosombo road dualization Project.

The road project, which will cost some two hundred and fifty-six million euros (€256 million), will be completed in thirty (30) months, and is being constructed by INZAG GmbH of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The project involves the construction of a two-lane dual carriageway and two-lane services roads from Ashaiman to Sebrepor. Additionally, there will be a two-lane dual carriageway from Sebrepor to Afienya, a two-lane dual carriageway from Afienya to Kpong, and a two-lane single carriageway from Kpong to Atimpoku.

The contractor also informed President Akufo-Addo that there would be three (3) bridges, a flyover at Ashaiman, an interchange at Asutuare and the construction of eleven footbridges at various locations along the stretch.

The President also inspected work on the Accra-Tema 26.6 km road project, which cost an estimated $100 million.

The project is expected to be completed in 24 months, and is being undertaken by Messrs Gansu International Corporation and Messrs China Major Bridge Engineering Company Limited.

The first lot of sixteen (16) kilometres begins from the Independence Arch to Nungua, while the second lot of 10.6 kilometres continues from Nungua, and terminates at Tema Community 3.

There would also be a three-tier interchange at the Nungua barrier to address congestion problems road users are experiencing.

Once completed, this road will serve as the primary link that gives access to communities such as Osu, La, Teshie, Nungua, Sakumono and the Tema Harbour.
