An important road project has been awarded in Ghana. The US$570 million package of works will be handled by Portuguese contractor Mota-Engil Engenharia & Construção África.
The contract was awarded by the Ghanaian Government and is for the improvement of the road connection between capital Accra and the port city of Tema, located some 25km to the east.
The improvement works will run from the Tema Interchange and through Apenkwa Interchange to Neoplan Junction, as well as including extension work to the highway.
The project is expected to take four years to complete and will see the road being widened and improved, featuring two lanes in either direction.
