N4 road to be closed for GRIDCo engineering works – Highways Authority
Sections of the N4 road will be closed to traffic for two days from Saturday, May 8, to Sunday, May 9, 2021, the Ghana Highway Authority has announced.
The closure is to enable the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) to string transmission line conductors along the Tetteh Quarshie – Madina – Adentan stretch.
The Authority, in a statement, advised motorists to follow the traffic diversion signs that will be placed on sections of the N4 at Okponglo, near the McDan Group Offices, La-Bawaleshi, and East Legon.
The road will be closed between 8 am and 12 noon daily.
“The Ministry of Roads and Highways through the Ghana Highway Authority wishes to inform the public and all road users that some sections of the N4 (Tetteh Quarshie-Koforidua) will experience some minimum to maximum disruptions to traffic flow from Saturday, May 8 to Sunday, May 9th, 2021, between the hours 8 am-12 noon daily. This is to enable GRIDco to undertake the stringing of transmission line conductors across the N4. (Tetteh Quarshie-Madina-Adentan Road),” the statement said.
The country has been experiencing intermittent power cuts in the past months, with nationwide blackouts on some occasions.
To improve the power supply, the CEO of GRIDCo, Mr Jonathan Amoako-Baah, said they were scaling up on projects across the country.
While acknowledging that recent power outages across the country had raised concerns over the return to perennial power outages, popularly known as “Dumsor, Mr Amoako-Baah was definite that “Dumsor is not coming back”.
The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has released a load-shedding time table for some affected areas in May.
