The first phase of the Obetsebi Lamptey Interchange in Accra is expected to be opened to traffic next week.
The project which is estimated to be about 90% complete is expected to ease traffic congestion that commuters are currently experiencing on that stretch.
Speaking at the project site, the Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako Atta expressed delight about the work done by Queiroz Galvao, the contractors on site.
The first phase of the $35 million project consists of a two-tier interchange with complementary storm drains and culverts, and will link the Kaneshie Market to the central business district of Accra, and through a loop to the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange area.
The construction site has been a busy zone over the last few months, with workers engaged day and night across the week to meet the construction timelines.
The Obetsebi-Lamptey Circle is a major roundabout that links Kaneshie to Accra through Graphic Road; Kaneshie to the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, and then Kaneshie to the spare-parts hub of Abossey Okai.
The contract for the design and the construction of the interchange and other ancillary works was signed in October 2016.
