The government has signed a financial agreement with Japan for the construction of phase II of the Tema Motorway Roundabout project from September this year.
The US$25 million grant was signed between the Ghana Highway Authority and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The phase II of the project will see the construction of a third-tier flyover, which will be a composite bridge structure, from Harbour Road to Ashaiman on the N2.
This will bring to completion the construction of a 3-tier interchange at the Tema Motorway Roundabout.
The project is expected to be completed in November 2024.
The works will involve the construction of a composite bridge and ramps and axillary roads of a total length of 1.75km between the Harbour Road to Ashaiman.
Present at the signing were the Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, officials from the Ghana Highway Authority, Ghana Embassy in Japan including H.E. Genevieve Edna Apaloo, Ghana’s Ambassador to Japan
The phase one of the project was inaugurated in June 2020.
Funded with $55.6 million Japanese grant, it involved the construction of a 2.1km three-lane dual carriageway with a 730 metres underpass and the improvement of a 1.9km two-lane dual carriageway from Ashaiman Roundabout onto the Harbour Road.
