Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has cut sod for works to begin on the dualization of the Accra to Tema Beach Road
The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has cut sod for works to begin on the dualization of the Accra to Tema Beach Road as part of the Accra Metropolitan Area Intelligent Traffic Management and Roads Completion Project, at Nungua in Accra.
The $100m project, expected to be completed in 24 months, has two components: the Accra Intelligent Traffic Management System which seeks to coordinate all traffic lights in Accra onto a Central Control System in order to improve the efficiency of traffic lights in real time; and the dualization of the road between Osu and Tema Community 3.
The 10 km La-Teshie stretch of road, will as part of the first phase be widened into a dual carriage road. The second phase, a 10.6-km stretch Nungua-Tema bound road will also be dualized.
As well, it will involve the construction of a three-tier interchange at Nungua Barrier to address the congestion problems that road users are experiencing at the location.
