Traffic congestion at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra is expected to reduce soon, as Queiroz Galvao Construction Company is getting ready to begin work in July, this year, on the construction of two flyovers at the circle.
The Project Manager of Queriroz Galvao, Mr Alexandra De Vasconcelos Cutinho, who presented the design of the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange at a stakeholders forum organized by the Department of Urban Roads (DUR) and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly in Accra, yesterday, said the first flyover would carry traffic from the Ring Road Central to the Ring Road West.
Mr Cutinho said the interchange would have an underpass with two lanes and the second flyover will connect the Akasanoma Road and the Ring Road West.
Mr Abass Awolu, Acting Director for DUR, disclosed that the project, estimated at the cost of 74 million Euros, was being funded by the Government of Ghana and the Brazilian Government.
He described the recurrent congestion of traffic at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle as appalling, adding that the area served as a transportation hub in Accra, hence the need to construct the interchange.
The project is expected to be completed in 18 months.

Also, I am reading about a certain Salifu Amankwaa who during Rawlings' time was in charge of the upkeep of the circle, and for some reason was very feared due to torture.... why?

Oct 28, 2013 at 1:35pm Work starts on new 3-tier interchange at Kwame Nkrumah Circle

President John Mahama on Monday cut the sod to officially commence the construction of the new three-tier Kwame Nkrumah Interchange in Accra.

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. Over 84,000 vehicles approach the Circle from the arterial roads and other intersections feeding into the Circle daily.

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.
