August is the planned commencement of construction on the Suame interchange project.
Francis Gambrah, the Ashanti Regional Director for the Urban Roads Department, claims that the project camping grounds is nearly finished even though physical construction on the Suame interchange project has not yet started.
This suggests that construction might begin earlier than August.
On Tuesday, June 6, 2023, when Regional Minister Simon Osei Mensah and a few officers visited the project campsite, the Ashanti Regional Director for the Urban Roads Department made this disclosure.
“This is a design-and-build contract, where the contractor is responsible for both the design and construction of the project. We started the design in February, and it is expected to be completed by August.
“Despite that, we’re almost done. We have submitted the basic design, and we may even begin actual construction by July, according to Mr. Gambrah.
Mohammed Omar Fazzani, the project manager at Rango Construction, is certain that once the plans are complete, work will begin on the project.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said that the government is assiduously working to improve urban transportation in the city and the Ashanti Region at large as he turned the first sod for the construction of a four-tier interchange at Suame in Kumasi.
He claimed that claims made in some circles that the Ashanti Region was lacking in development initiatives were unfounded.
The Suame Interchange project, which is a fulfillment of a promise the President made on a tour to the Ashanti Region last year, will include overpasses at the Abrepo, Krofrom, Anomangye, Magazine New Road, and Abusuakruwa junctions along with a four-tier interchange at the current Suame Roundabout.
