Mahama commissions Kasoa interchange today

President John Mahama will today Tuesday, November 29, open the $160-million interchange at Kasoa in the Central region, as he wraps up his two-day campaign tour of the region.

The interchange is expected to considerably reduce traffic on the Accra-Cape Coast road. Residents living beyond the toll booth at Tuba and in Kasoa have had to endure stressful travels on the road.

To beat traffic and get to work early, workers have had to leave home before 6am every morning, a situation which is expected to ease once the entire project is completed.

The Kasoa interchange will reduce pressure on the N1 Highway which is now a choked route for motorists from Kasoa, as anyone seeking to get to Accra and beyond must use the Highway.

The project is a 270-metre interchange with two overpasses on the main Kasoa-Winneba Road, the 33-kilometre Kasoa-Obom-Amasaman Road and 20 kilometres of road in the Ga South Municipality and Kasoa. Work began in December 2014.

It is financed by a loan facility from the Brazillian government and construction is being done by a Brazilian company Queiroz Galvao.

The President will also inaugurate the Kotokuraba Market as well as three Community Day Senior High Schools in the region and also interact with the community of the University of Education, Winneba.
