The Minister of Roads and Highways Kwasi Amoako-Atta, Director General of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), Paul Asare Ansah and the CEO of Meridian Port Services (MPS), Mohammed Samara have visited the Tema motorway roundabout to inspect the ongoing expansion of the roundabout.
The visit by the minister was to have firsthand information of the expansion works going on at the roundabout.
The contractor for the project is SinoHydro Corporation Limited.
The Tema Motorway Roundabout improvement project involves the construction of four by-passes to reduce the number of vehicles approaching the roundabout, construction of an additional third lane to widen the roundabout itself.
Work on the project, which is being funded by the MPS at the cost of GH¢28 million, is expected to be completed by August this year.
The Roads Minister commended the management of MPS for investing in the project to improve on the road network in the area.
He pledged the government’s support towards the successful execution of the project.
Mohammed Samara said the project, which formed part of MPS corporate social initiative, was aimed at alleviating difficulties on road transportation within the Tema enclave.
The Director General of GPHA, Paul Asare Ansah said the project will facilitate the movement of goods through and from the port.
