President Mahama to inspect Circle interchange project
Accra, Oct. 28, GNA - President John Mahama will on Monday inspect ongoing works on a new three-tier Kwame Nkrumah Interchange and cut the sod to officially commence construction.
The project involves detailed engineering and construction of the old Circle into a three-tier interchange and other ancillary works including drainage, terminals, pedestrian walkways and landscaping.
'The Kwame Nkrumah Circle has reached the limit of its capacity to contain the traffic passing through it daily,' said a press release from the Presidency at Flagstaff House copied to the Ghana News Agency on Monday.
It added that over 84,000 vehicles approach the Circle from the arterial roads and other intersections feeding into the Circle on daily basis.
'The project, when completed in two years, will effectively and efficiently tackle the traffic congestion challenges currently being experienced, ensure improved drainage and pedestrian safety among others', the release stated.
