Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia has cut the sod for the Tema Motorway Roundabout Phase 2 construction project to begin officially. When finished, the $27 million project will enhance traffic flow on the Tema Motorway and its surroundings.
As part of the project, the N1 Accra-Tema highway through to the Aflao road would have a 2.1-kilometre, three-lane dual carriageway with 190-meter underpads. The project will also include Tema Beach Road.
According to Vice President Bawumia, the second phase would increase the total number of interchanges the government has built or is currently working on finishing. He gave the Ministry of Roads and Highways the task of seeing that the project was completed.
Phase one of the Tema Motorway roundabout was completed in 2020, which involved the construction of a 2.1-kilometre, three-lane dual carriageway with a 190-meter underpass on National Route N1. Other improvements included a 1.9 km long two-lane dual carriageway connecting the Harbour and Akosombo roads.
