even in many asian or Latin American countries people use to cross highways. That is not restricted to Africa.

This think with tha highway is that is has been newly built and construction work is still going on their although cars are already driving on it.

Naga Solidus,

here is some more information which was attached to the photos

Tetteh Quarshie Interchange (name of the interchange)

"Police personnel have been stationed at various points at the newly constructed Tetteh Quarshie Interchange to help drivers navigate the confusing maze of interconnected roads. Apart from instructing the drivers about directions, the officers are also distributing pamphlets on how to use the new interchange.
The interchange is expected to ease traffic on the Legon-Accra route. The 80 billion-cedi project is yet to be fully completed but it was opened to traffic on Sunday, with minor works still underway"



PS: I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIND PICTURES OF LAGOS HIGHWAYS (MOST ARE SIX LANE HIGHWAYS) .....ABUJA EVEN HAS EIGHT LANE HIGHWAYS BUT it is impossible to find photos on the internet......NIGERIAS ARE VERY LAZY AT PORTRAYING THEIR COUNTRY TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD....NO PHOTOS TO BE FOUND

So is this the first grade-seperated roadway interchange in Ghana? Or do they have any further grade seperation at subsequent junctions?

I can't figure out why.

Naga-Solidus, Well, there must be others by now. This junction is new, however. I have only been once to Ghana and that is 10 years back (on a week-end trip from Côte d´ivoire, where I lived). 10 years ago Ghana was much less developed than it is nowadays. ...and in the 80´s it was a no go area. Things have considerably improved since then tahks to Rawlings and Kufuor.

I cannot understand why there are virtually new pics on Nigeria´s expressways. Currently there is a lot of road construction going on in Nigeria.
