[GH] Ghana | road infrastructure • Ghana Buekwam

National roads are the main routes between major cities. The N1 is the coast road. Odd numbers run east-west (except the N5), and increase to the north, and even numbers run north-south (without a particular ordering).
Interregional roads are other main routes. There are only 11.
Regional roads are subdivided into major roads with two digits and minor roads with three digits.

From the photos it looks like Ghana follows "drive on the right side" rule. Was that always the case or they changed from left to right after independence?

I'm actually not sure, they may have driven on the left when they were under Britain.

Ghana changed to driving on the right-hand side on 4 August 1974; several stamps were issued as part of the information drive.

New interchange in Kumasi. They call it "the biggest interchange in West Africa". I think there are bigger interchanges in Lagos, Abuja or Dakar, but still, it is nice. It's the first interchange in Kumasi. It used to be a roundabout.

Tema Motorway To Become Six Lanes

The Government would soon expand the Tema Motorway into a six-lane with an interchange at the Tema roundabout, President John Dramani Mahama announced yesterday.

The expansion, he explained, would help ease traffic congestion and avoid the numerous crashes along the road. President Mahama made the announcement when he broke the grounds for the commencement of work on the three-tier Kwame Nkrumah Circle interchange in Accra.

I thought by now we would be using led based street lights. Less power consumption, longer life-time and can be easily powered by a small solar farm installed for every 5 - 10kms. Also the option of using the ones with integrated solars also exist. And these days the costs are so low that we could actually have a whole inter-city road network lit with solar lights.

A new interchange at the inner city ring road of Accra. It's planned to be completed before the end of the year.

This is not the first interchange in Kumasi. The K.N.U.S.T interchange was built over 40 years ago. The Asafo interchange preceded this one as well.
