Plan to expand motorway to 10 lanes
Kwasi Amoako-Atta said the 10-lane road will be composed of free-way, access control, three urban highways, and some footbridges for pedestrians.
The motorway is an essential road connecting Accra to the port city of Tema.
Motorway considered a death trap.
YEN.com.gh also reported that an articulated truck crashed into one of the toll booths on the Accra-Tema Motorway, killing an attendant instantly.
Another attendant who happens to be deaf and dumb also sustained serious injuries.
This incident, recorded in December 2022, is one of the many that has led to calling the motorway a death trap.
Ghanaians recently campaigned online for the motorway to be better maintained.
