Parliament approves $338m agreement to expand Accra-Tema Motorway

Parliament has approved a concessionary agreement between the Roads Ministry and Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund (GIIF) worth $338 million for the expansion of the Tema Motorway redevelopment and expansion project.

The motorway whose troubles are well documented is expected to be expanded to 10 lanes.

Speaking on the floor of Parliament on Friday, December 15, while presenting the request, the Chairman of the Roads and Transport Committee, Kennedy Osei Nyarko said the concession period would be 30 years and construction is expected to last for 36 months.

“Mr Speaker it is a 10-lane redevelopment project that they are doing. They are going to expand the lanes with eight interchanges at various sections,” he said.

He added that “the project comprises of three sections – the first section is 19.5 kilometres with a second section of 2.7 kilometres and the third section is 1.5 kilometres.”

Also, the Ranking Member on the Roads and Transport Committee, Isaac Adjei Mensah backed the agreement on behalf of the Minority.

He said “This project is appropriate that is why we support it and we expect that the first tranche will be executed to give room for the second and third tranches,” he said.
