There have been several reports that have highlighted the absence of streetlights on Ghana's premier motorway, the Accra-Tema motorway.

A street lighting project has however commenced on the Tema motorway to illuminate the streets.

The exercise was started a couple of days ago, as LED lights were provided from Tetteh Quarshie Interchange to the Sidalco company stretch of the motorway towards Tema.

The project was started after the constant public outcry about the darkness which served as a shield for criminals to freely operate along the stretch.

The Ministry of Roads and Highways had earlier given an assurance that the malfunctioning street lights would be replaced.

Sometime in 2002, the government abandoned its plan to light up the motorway to coincide with the country’s 50th independence anniversary celebrations following a series of challenges including cable, transformer and lamp thefts which delayed its completion.

In 2017, the Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) estimated that between 57,000 and 89,000 vehicles used the highway daily but poor illumination had remained a major problem.
