The Tetteh Quarshie-Madina highway road construction which was awarded on contract in November 2006 is scheduled for completion in July this year. According to MR. Eben Gyampo, Resident Engineer of SONITRA, the project is currently at 97 percent completion and will see a 100 completion in the next three months.
Speaking to 233 Live News, Mr. Gyampo revealed that the project which was due for completion in 2009 faced several challenges mainly finance which resulted in the long delay in completing on the scheduled date.
SONITRA, in November 2006, won the bid to construct the 4.6 kilometer three-lane dual carriageway, scheduled for completion in May 2009.
President John Mahama in a recent visit to the site said road construction to ensure free flow of traffic in the capital was government’s priority and that will focus on completing other major road construction projects in Accra.
He added that the road was one of ‘the gang of six’ roads in the capital that needed urgent attention. The President further urged the contractors working on the GIMPA- Agbogba road to expedite action to completely rid the roads of heavy and unnecessary traffic.
