In keeping with a promise, he made during his tour of the Ashanti Region last year, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, cut the sod for the beginning of construction of a 4-tier interchange at Suame on Tuesday, October 18, 2022.
The Suame Interchange, which will be the second in Ghana after the Pokuase Interchange, which I dedicated on July 9, 2021, would be the first 4-tier interchange in the Ashanti Region, according to President Akufo-Addo.
When finished, he said, it will reduce the ongoing congestion around the Suame Roundabout and enhance urban mobility within the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan Area.
The President announced during his speech that the Suame Interchange would include a 4-Tier Interchange at the current Suame Roudabout, an overpass at the Abrepo Junction, an overpass at the Krofuom Junction, an overpass at the Anomangye Junction, an overpass at the Magazine New Road Junction, and an overpass at the Abusuakruwa Junction.
M/S Grupo Dizmar of Spain and Rango Construction Ltd, a Ghanaian company, will construct the Suame Interchange.
Rango Construction Company Ltd., a Ghanaian company, will take on the supplemental road component entirely. The Ministry of Roads and Highways, through the Department of Urban Roads, will be in charge of overseeing the entire project.
The Ministry of Roads and Highways and the contractors have been tasked by President Akufo-Addo to help ensure that the country gets value for money and that deadlines are strictly followed.
