Traffic on the Accra-Tema-Beach road will soon ease as expansion works have begun for the dualization of the road.

The 100 million dollar project will among others, improve the road capacity along the Osu, LA Teshie, Nungua and Tema stretch to ensure safety of commuters and other road users.

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia who officially cut the sod to signal the massive transformation in the Municipality said government is committed to delivering on its promises and this is evident in the massive  major road construction across the country.

He gave the assurance that affected property owners will be duly compensated.

The Accra-Tema Beach road is one stretch in the capital yet to see proper expansion works, as governments over the years have undertaken what many see as ‘a start and stop’ expansion works to the dismay of residents and motorists who regularly use the road.

With government’s declaration of 2020 as the year of roads, the beach road is one stretch that will see a major phase lift.

The project is in two phases. The first phase involves the coordination of all Traffic signals in the Greater Accra Region and the development of a Traffic Management Center.

The second phase comprises the completion of dualization of the Accra-Tema-Beach road between the Black Star Square and Tema Community 3.

The project also includes an interchange at the Nungua Barrier.

Vice President Bawumia mentioned some ongoing road  projects, stressing that the projects will be completed on time to bring relief to the people.

He gave the assurance that affected property owners will be duly compensated.

Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako Atta

The Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako Atta noted that the expansion works, expected  to be completed in two years will ease traffic congestion in the area.

The project is being funded by the China Development Bank to improve urban mobility and enhance socio-economic productivity of the national capital.
