The Ghana Government is to construct a 65.8 kilometer alternative route stretching from Asutuare junction through Asutuare Township to Asikuma junction which forms part of the Eastern Corridor road.

The Eastern Corridor route is a road network that stretches from Tema through the Southern part of the Volta Region to the Northern Part of Ghana.The new road would have a bridge over the Volta River between Avakpo and Dufor Adidime.The $148million project, which would also include the improvement of the Asutuare-Aveyime road, would help open up the North Tongu, West Dangbe, Asuogyaman and the Lower Manya area for investment and development.The project would be funded by the Japanese government.Speaking at a public forum to present the road designs and results of economic, sociological and ecological surveys on the project to the affected communities, at Asutuare, recently, the Minister for Roads and Highways, Mr. Joe Gidisu, said the project would include the rehabilitation of road networks in the affected districts to enhance travelling and also develop trade and employment.
