Construction of the Borteyman-Motorway Road project in Ghana is currently 70 per cent complete.

The construction work being undertaken by Oswal Investment is expected to be completed by December 2023 ahead of the 13th All African Games in March 2024.

The 5.8-kilometer Borteyman-Motorway Road project, commenced in June 2022, is expected to improve road connectivity and access to the Borteyman Sports Complex, one of the facilities to be used for the African Games.

The project consists of a 5.8km dual lane main carriageway (43.66m lanes) with asphaltic concrete pavement surface; an additional 5.8km single service lanes with asphaltic concrete pavement surface, and the construction of walkaways and cycling lanes on both sides of the road.

Minister of Roads and Highways, Mr. Kwasi Amoako-Attah applauded the Oswal Investments Group, the local contractor for the competent and efficient work being done and delivering ahead of schedule.

Mr. Amoako-Attah directed the contractors to put all safety measures in place along the motorway to guarantee the safety of motorists during the construction period.

“The expansion of the Motorway will begin pretty soon. We have to make sure that all the safety concerns are well taken care of,” he stated.

The Minister said there would be as many as four interchanges on the Motorway as part of the expansion work to ease traffic flow.

Director of the Department of Urban roads, Mr. James Amoo-Gottfried revealed, “We have done about 70 per cent of the Borteyman-Motorway Road project and asphalting is ongoing on the main road. We are doing the merging and diversion to and from the motorway right now.”

At the Flowerpot flyover Project, Mr. Emmanuel Gogbotse, the Resident Engineer told the Minister that the last of the seven piers was under construction and would be completed in four weeks.

“Luckily we have managed to do the piers so the beams will come smoothly and hopefully by December, we expect to construct the whole girder from the beginning to the end to East Legon,” he said.
