The construction of the Kasoa interchange and auxiliary works has currently reached an advance stage and Phase One would be open to traffic today, Tuesday November 29 by President John Dramani Mahama.
This was disclosed by Minister for Communication, Edward Omane Boamah during the last Meet-The-Press series before the December elections.
He said the opening of the road would ease traffic and ensure convenient movement of goods and services.
With regards to road infrastructure, he said roads in the country have gotten better as unprecedented investments have been pumped into fixing them.
“Across the length and breadth of our country, massive efforts have gone into making our roads better to facilitate the movement of goods and services,” he stated.
This he said, has impacted positively into national growth and recently launch of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange is one of many transport projects government is undertaking under the Changing Lives, Transforming Ghana agenda.
According to him, President John Mahama is undoubtedly changing lives and transforming Ghana as rehabilitation and opening of roads within the Accra-East Corridor has brought tremendous relief to many inhabitants within the eastern part of the city.
“The substantial completion of the Awoshie-Pokuase road has improved access between Awoshie and Pokuase and reduced travelling time and brought relief to travelers and commuters in the corridor.”
“The commencement of the work on the Pokuase Interchange would further open up the Western corridor of Accra and facilitate easy connectivity of the capital city.”
“Other municipal areas and district capitals including Cape Coast, Koforidua and Takoradi among others have also or very soon going to benefit from the project.”
“Many communities have also received significant improvement on the surface condition of their roads as a result of the implementation of three billion Ghana cedi cocoa roads improvement project and the substantial completion of several kilometers of national and regional roads notably, western corridor road project and Eastern corridor roads.
Work he said, has begun to improve congestion on the Tema Motorway Roundabout and work will soon begin on the Obetsebi Interchange, the Pokuasi Interchange, the Flower Pot Roundabout Flyover across the Motorway into East Legon and Ajiringano which would bring relief to many people who ply those roads.
