The Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) has announced that motorists using the Accra-Tema motorway will, from Sunday, August 1 to August 22, experience disruption to traffic flow.

In a press statement signed by the Acting Chief Executive of GHA, A.B.K. Nuhu explained that the 21-day disruption is to allow repair works to be undertaken on the damaged beam of the Ashaiman overpass bridge.

“The Ministry of Roads and Highways through the Ghana Highway Authority wishes to inform the general public, and all road users that, owing to repair works to be undertaken on the damaged beam of the Ashaiman overpass bridge, the Tema-Accra bound stretch of the motorway will experience some minimum to maximum disruptions to traffic flow from August 1 to August 22, 2021.”

He, therefore, advised motorists to follow the traffic diversion signs that will be placed at designated sections of the motorway to facilitate free movement of traffic through the construction area.

Mr Nuhu further apologized to the general public for the inconveniences that will arise out of the exercise.

“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused. For further clarification, kindly contact the Public Affairs Division of the Ghana Highway Authority.”
