Akufo-Addo commissions Pokuase Interchange today

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to commission the high-standard Pokuase Interchange on Friday, July 9.

Though the four-tier interchange has partially been opened, Friday’s ceremony by President Akufo-Addo will be a formal gesture to fully open it to traffic.

Already, sensitisation by the Department of Urban Roads of the Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) has begun.

Work on the $94.8 million interchange began in 2017.

Partly funded by the African Development Bank (ADB), the project is expected to improve urban mobility and form a nexus between the Eastern Region and the Greater Accra Region.

Designed to fit into the Central Corridor road infrastructure project, the interchange links Accra-Nsawam, Awoshie-Pokuase, and Pokuase-Kwabenya-Ritz Junction roads, and also connects the Tema Motorway.

Feasibility study and preliminary work on the project including funding sources and parliamentary approval were made under the John Mahama-led government.

It is one of the model moves most Ghanaians have been yearning for from successive governments of different stock.
