Ghanaians are viciously exchanging blows over the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange

While some Ghanaians are of the view that the interchange is a positive development that will help improve traffic flow in Accra, others feel that the projected is overrated and will not significantly benefit the city.

On our Facebook page, YEN readers weighed in on the debate, making arguments for and against the project.

One Kweku Agbesi argued that opponents of the interchange and its lighting system were playing politics.

"So GH, can we ever be appreciative for once....! These are LED (diodes) and consumes little energy however there are solar panels to generate it source of power. Let's not politicise everything in the country," he wrote.

His views were echoed by Bobby Karl who said opponents of the project were being hypocritical.

"They are being too hypocritical. What is real let's accept it in good faith for one good thing the other. Do you think NPP could have done more than this???!!!! Give reality a break," he wrote.

But others were not impressed, with Nana Akwasi Agyei arguing that the interchange will not improve the country's economy.

"Does this heal the country's economy? Check how much got into their pockets.Decoration Lights.? Attend funerals or go to churches this christmas and you will know this is nothing and vanity," he said.

The interchange, which cost 74 million Euros, was funded by the government in partnership with the Brazilian government.

Brazilian company, Gueiroz Galvao Construction, undertook the construction.
