Government has announced that it has signed a contract for the design and construction of the Accra-Tema Motorway and extensions project.
The Ministry of Roads & Highways announced in a statement that the contract has been signed with Portuguese company, Mota-Engil, Engenharia E Constructao Africa S. A.
The press statement signed by the Minister of Roads & Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, said the contract was signed on December 16, 2020, after the approval of the Public Procurement Authority and the Central Tender Review Board.
“Actual construction works will commence soon after the detailed design has been approved and relocation of services are completed,” the statement explained.
The reconstruction and expansion of the existing 19.5km motorway into a two-lane dual carriageway for the freeway and a three-lane dual carriageway for the urban highway is among the key scopes of the project.
The freeway will remain concrete surfacing, whilst the urban highway will be in asphaltic concrete with paved shoulders, the statement said.
