Parliamentary Roads Committee inspects road projects in Accra (Video)

In order to assess the state of the work, the Parliament’s Roads and Transport Committee visited Accra’s road projects.

The 33.4 km Ofankor-Nsawam and its related works were toured and examined by the Committee, which was presided over by Kennedy Osei Nyarko.


The Obetsebi Lamptey interchange and its supporting works were another project.

The $3300 million road project between Ofankor and Nsawam, which will take 24 months to complete, is making steady progress.

The Government of Ghana is responsible for 70% of the $240 million funding, and Mariipoma Enterprise, the contractor, is responsible for 30%.

The route will include eight lanes, nine footbridges, flyovers, and three interchanges, according to project engineer Kwabena Benpong.

The £870 million Obetsebi Lamptey interchange, which also contains a service and auxiliary road, was reportedly 65% complete.

Kennedy Nyarko, the chairman of the Parliament’s Roads and Transport Committee, expressed satisfaction with the work’s advancement and the use of solely Ghanaian contractors.

Governs Kwami Agbodza, the committee’s ranking member, was pleased with the partnership but voiced concern over the volume of work and short timeframe, which could compromise the quality of the job.
