Construction works on the Tema roundabout interchange is progressing steadily with over 60% of the project complete, Mr Yujin Uemura, the Project Manager of Shimizu-Dai Nippon JV has revealed.

Briefing a section of the press during a tour to the project site on Wednesday, Mr Uemura said drainage systems and pedestrian footbridges were in their completion stages with over 70% of the work also done.

The project which is estimated to cost $57 Million is funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) through its Official Development Assistance (ODA) grants.

“Now the road work is going to speed up because now the concrete works are almost finished, so it will be followed by the road work. Currently, the road work is about 50% complete but from now till the end of the project, the road work will be the main activity,” he said.

The project is aimed at improving the capacity of the roundabout and its adjoining roads, improving the safety and efficiency of transport in the Greater Accra region as well as to provide an uninterrupted traffic flow to facilitate trade and transit in the West African Sub-region to enhance economic growth.

The three-layer interchange is expected to have an underpass on the east-west (Accra to Aflao) stretch, a signaled intersection at the middle level, an 11.72km stretch of road, a 19.4km drainage system, and four pedestrian bridges.

The project, which commenced in February last year, is expected to be completed ahead of the June 2020 deadline.
