President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Monday morning cut the sod to signify the beginning of construction works on the Obetsebi-Lamptey Interchange in Accra.
The redevelopment of the Obetsebi-Lamptey Circle in Accra into an interchange is to help ease traffic congestion on that corridor which links Kaneshie, Graphic Road, Nkrumah Circle and Mamprobi.
The first phase consists of a two-tier interchange with storm drains and culverts beneath the Graphic Road.
It will link the Kaneshie Market to the central business district of Accra and through a loop to the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange area.
The second phase involves the widening of the road into a three-lane dual carriageway, with provision for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) facilities.
It will also see to the widening of the Awudome Cemetery and Nii Teiko Din (Prampram Junction) roads into dual carriage lanes, as well as improvement of the Kaneshie Market Terminal.
