Akufo-Addo commissions Pokuase Interchange; first in West Africa

Pokuase Interchange is first in West Africa

On Friday, 9th July 2021, President Akufo-Addo commissioned the four-tier Pokuase Interchange.

The interchange is the first of its kind in Ghana, the first of its kind in West Africa, and the second of its kind in Africa, which will help solve, once and for all, the nightmare endured for several decades by commuters within and outside of this vicinity.

He put on record that the original contract design was for a three-tier interchange but through efficient management by government, the Interchange was modified to a four-tier structure within the same contract sum.

On behalf of the government, the President expressed appreciation to the African Development Bank, which jointly provided funds with government for the execution of this project.

He appeal to the users of the facility, especially drivers, to adhere to the various road safety measures put in place for the safe use of the facility.

The modernisation of Ghana, he added, is steadily gathering momentum, and ”I entreat all Ghanaians to join hands in building the Ghana we want.”
