CONSTRUCTION of the fourth interchange in Kumasi is due to start very soon at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Roundabout.
The project forms part of the Government of Ghana’s road rehabilitation from the Komfo Anokye Roundabout to Abuakwa.
Mr Theodore Quaye, the Metropolitan Roads Engineer of Kumasi, told the Daily Graphic that, “Very soon, the project would start because the way has been cleared now.”
Currently, two interchanges are under construction at Sofo Line and Asokwa, while one had long been completed at Asafo.
He gave an assurance that efforts were being made to get all the major roads in the metropolis completed to ease traffic congestion.
Mr Quaye said the contractors working on the projects had stepped up work and were determined to meet the expectations of the government and people of Kumasi.
He said his outfit was concentrating on routine maintenance of roads in the metropolis as a way of reshaping the entire road system.
The metropolitan engineer indicated that last year, a number of roads with potholes were tackled to improve the quality of the road network, and this was continuing in the current year.
He, however, pointed out that his outfit would want to ensure discipline in the management of their budget.
“This means we are going to prioritise the roads to be tackled, instead of tackling too many roads,“ he said.
Mr Quaye maintained that only projects approved by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly would be worked on.
