Parts of Kwame Nkrumah Circle interchange opens to traffic

President John Mahama will open a section of the Kwame Nkrumah interchange, which is still under construction, to traffic Friday morning.

The project which started two years ago has forced the contractor, Queiroz Galvao Construction, to create a number of diversions and relocations to ease the traffic that builds up at the busy area.
The project which costs some 74.88 million Euros is being jointly financed by the Ghana government and credit from Brazil.

Urban Roads Director, Raymond Ahwollu, said the opening of parts of the road will be preceded by a short inspection of ongoing works.
Outstanding work

Mr Gatsiko said work on the third interchange, which will link Ring Road Central to Ring Road West, was far advanced.Work on the loop, which would connect to the interchanges, was also near completion, he said.

He said the outstanding major work was the improvement of the other roads around the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.Generally, Mr Gatsiko said, the whole project was about 75 per cent complete, and indicated that work would be completed by the end of December, 2015, or the end of January, 2016.
Workers were seen working on the other components of the project, which included the third interchange and culverts.Circle interchange
President Mahama cut the sod for the construction of the three-tier interchange at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra in October, 2013.
The 74.88 million euro project is being jointly financed with credit from the Brazilian Government and the Ghana Government.Aside from the three-tier interchange, other roads around the Kwame Nkrumah Circle will be improved. These include rehabilitation of the Ring Road East to the Feo Oyo Intersection on the Ring Road West.

The roads will be asphaltic concrete surfaced, with pedestrian walkways and bicycle paths.
