Awoshie-Pokuase interchange project to start this year

The Minister for Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako Atta, says work on the Awoshie-Pokuase interchange will commence later in 2017.

According to him, the procurement processes for the commencement of the 95 million dollar project will be completed in six months.

The project, which was initiated by the previous NDC government, saw parliament approve a loan of $83.6 million for the expansion in 2016.

The African Development Bank (AfDB) is providing the funds, while the Government of Ghana (GoG) is to offer a counterpart funding of $11.1 million.
