The Regional Director of the Ghana Highways Authority for Greater Accra; Ing Emmanuel Nii Laryea Odai said the construction of the 23km road will contribute to the overall socio-economic development and enhance connectivity. He disclosed that about one thousand temporary structures need to pave way for the construction work to start. Ing Odai explained that, work will commence immediately on areas where structure are not available for clearing purposes. He added that the project that is been funded by the Government of Ghana will take 24 months to complete. It would be a dual-carriageway, with a width of 30m on both sides from the current road median, with service lanes, to access communities on both sides of the road. There will be an interchange at Oyibi junction. He explained further that, the work which should have commenced in December 2023, has been delayed due to structures on the right of way.  He therefore pleaded with encroachers to vacate the ROW by 23rd January 2023 to enable the contractor to commence the construction work. Ing Odai assured residents that old structures in the right of way with building or development permit would be considered for compensation.
