Senior journalist and political commentator-Kwesi Pratt Jr, has commended President Mahama over the recently commissioned Kwame Nkrumah Interchange in Accra–saying, it’s the biggest ever.
Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo, Mr. Pratt said:
“Lack of traffic flow results in an estimated loss of about 100 million dollars per annum to our national economy…This is the longest flyover and the highest in West Africa…please note I said flyover, the longest bridge is in Lagos, Nigeria but the longest and highest flyover is in Accra, Ghana.”
The newly constructed Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange was inaugurated on Monday– it project cost GHS320.2 million and it was jointly financed by the Brazilian government and the government of Ghana.
It is expected to carry about 84,000 vehicles a day and constitutes a key bottleneck in the major road network that links the suburban areas of Accra to the central business district.
